Historical Fiction has become one of my, if not MY favorite genre. So I’m really excited to be part of this Historical Fiction/nonfiction blog hop, hosted by the great Amy @ Passages To The Past.

Here is the book I offer. It is a brand new hardcover:

As Always Jack

181 pages
Published by Axios in 2012

“A touching, true love story that captures the spirit of a generation and a love that endures, as a daughter learns about her lost father through the love letters he wrote her mother while at war”, says Goodreads.

  1. I can’t just pick one. So I’ll list the ones vying for attention in my mind.

    The King’s Concubine by Anne O’brien
    The Lady Of The Rivers by Philippa Gregory
    Queen Hereafter by Susan Fraser King
    Captive Queen by Alison Weir
    The Lady In The Tower by Alison Weir
    To Be Queen by Christy English

    Just to name a few. 🙂 Thank you for the chance in the giveaway.



  2. One of the best historical novels I read this year was entitled, “True Sisters” by Sandra Dallas. It was about the settling of the Mormons in Salt Lake City. It followed a group of believers from Ireland across the plains to Salt Lake City. The struggles and hardships they faced was immense. If you have not read this yet, I highly recommend it.

  3. My best for this year was probably Annexed by Sharon Dogar. Looking through my list, I didn’t read nearly as many historical fiction novels as I expected in 2012–need to remedy that in 2013!


  4. My favorite historical fiction book that I read this year would probably be “Courting Miss Hattie” by Pamela Morsi.
    It’s beautifully romantic and occurs during the early part of the America’s history. LOVED IT!


  5. Thanks for participating in this hop! Lots of fun and lots of new books to add to my ever growing list!!! My fav historical fiction reading this year is A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon. Yes, it’s been out for a while, but I finally got around to reading it. Outstanding series of books.


  6. If I had to narrow it down to one novel, I would have to say Susanna Kearsley’s The Shadowy Horses. Susanna is by far one of the best historical fiction novelists I have read.
