Exploring what's "new" on the historical shelves

Downton Revisited

Are you as distressed as I am that Downton Abbey will soon be ending FOR GOOD? (sob) Given the world-wide popularity of the show, there are surprisingly few books set in the Edwardian era that incorporate the upstairs-downstairs, love-interest and drama that make the show so engaging (to say nothing of the yummy fashions.) But, in an attempt to offer solace, I’ve gathered a few volumes which segue in and beyond Read More...



A Murderous Merry Christmas

Christmas is filled with traditions whose repetition year after year provide a sense of continuity and joy, as we remember favorite moments from childhood and anticipate adding new memories to that book of mental treasures. Since many of our traditions date from the Victorian period, I wanted to offer an array of historical fiction from that era as a special Christmas tribute. However, as I began to scan the real and digital shelves, I found Read More...



History ReFreshed | Medieval World Of Craft And Intrigue

Earlier this month in Anaheim, Blizzard Entertainment held its annual conference (BlizCon) to showcase upcoming releases by this originator of some of the most popular and innovative computer games on the market. In honor of one of its signature brands, World of Warcraft, which features a medieval-like fantasy landscape of warriors and weapons, we will look this time at books from the medieval world.

Keeping the Home Fires Burning

Two things historical fiction readers love: historical dramas brought to television, usually by the BBC, and series of books featuring the same characters and settings. In honor of Masterpiece Theater’s new fall historical series Home Fires, which highlights the women of one small village and their work to further the war effort in the opening days of World War II, we’ll look at three authors who have created series that also Read More...



In The Twilight Of Empire

With PBS set to begin another lush historical series, Indian Summers, set in the waning days of British rule in 1930s India, it’s time to look at fiction that illuminates that fascinating and vanished world. THE RAJ QUARTET by Paul Scott Read More...



Magnolias And Apples

There’s something about summer that makes me think of sipping mint juleps on the front porch swing under a lazy fan, lush ferns in pots, and the sound of bees buzzing in the hydrangea bushes. For this column, we’ll visit Roaring Twenties-to-World War II-era fiction set in the South, New York and Seattle. MAGNOLIA CITY by Duncan W. Alderson Read More...

The World of Downton Abbey
