    I wonder if you can recommend a short, interesting historical fiction book I can share with my book club. I am known to ask them to read very, long, too much royalty, or boring books, so they don’t get an interest in historical fiction. I have tried Anya Seton’s Katherine and Sharon Penman, Sunne of Splendours, to mention a few. I like you, love Dorothy Dunnett so wanted to suggest The King Hereafter but thought that might be a bit long for them, so went for “A Rum affair”, but that was a bit disappointing and didn’t grab me, let alone them!!!

    Any suggestions?

    I only just discovered your blog and it is fabulous and I have only scratched the surface.

    Thanks Annette

      Hi, Annette. Seton, Penman and Dunnett are three of my favourite historical fiction authors, so I’m sorry they haven’t been a success with your book club! Maybe they would prefer something published more recently? Have you tried things like Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell or The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton? One of Rose Tremain’s books might be good – I have just read Lily, which was very short – or something by Tracy Chevalier.

      A few other suggestions: The Familiars by Stacey Halls, The Sealwoman’s Gift by Sally Magnusson, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See, Golden Hill by Francis Spufford. I find it difficult to pick books for other people too, but hopefully you’ll be able to find something they’ll like.

      • Annette Collins says:

        Thanks, those are some good suggestions. Maybe “Girl with a Pearl earring” although they may have read that one. Will take a look at the other suggestions!
