For some of us, when we hear “historical fiction,” we immediately look the other way for a different book. Historical fiction can sometimes seem an awful lot like school. But for those who read and enjoy the genre, historical fiction isn’t just history, but great, exciting, romantic, mysterious or suspenseful stories that just-so-happen to take place in the past. Whether you’re already an historical fiction reader or you’re new to the genre, you might consider looking for one of these books that have just come out, are getting ready to come out or are new to our shelves. What do you recommend?
