They have written over 45 works of historical fiction. I have every one of their books and have read them over and over again. Just read one and you will be hooked. I was referencing the literature-based curriculum Sonlight, but not one specifically based on historical novels.
I wanted to share my newest discovered historical fiction author. I wish she had more books for me to read. Vikki Kestell has now moved to the top of my list for favorite authors.
Has anyone else read any of her books. Little House on the Prairie and the Mandie series are my two all time favorite series from my childhood years. I am truly a big fan of any historical series. A reader emailed to ask if these books would be appropriate for boys in their mid to late teens. I do think that some guys would enjoy the Stonewycke and Secret of the Rose series they were obviously written by a man!
Hope that helps! Very exciting. Biblical fiction could be a post in itself! And The Secret of the Rose! I need to put it on a to-read list! George MacDonald is an all-time favorite of mine. Simons Trilogy. Her books are based in mainly Georgia and Florida during the civil war time.
And I was in my mid-teens when I devoured the Stonewycke books. Mine are, Heather. I read those books as a teen. History was never my favorite subject. Lest we forget. Can someone who has and is Jewish please tell me whether the tone, or other suggestions in the book, are somehow disrespectful? I get annoyed by the sloppiness of fiction writers re historical facts, but I wonder if there is more to it than that.

I doubt that many love stories were ever allowed to flourish in such a horrendous place. To write otherwise is a sacrilege to the memory of the millions who perished there. I would find it more believable if the novel was written as a horror story, rather than a love story. I think it trivializes one of the most horrific periods in human history. It was truly a Hell on Earth, and not just for the Jews but also for the hundreds of thousands of others who were shipped, tortured, starved and exterminated there.
Detailed accuracy seems irrelevant in that case. The errors noted seem in context absolutely minor. Overall it seemed to me a story of a memory not historical fact.

The beginning of an ambitious series with a book for each of the four years of World War I so we start just before the outbreak and go into the trenches and on into the now famous Christmas Day football game. We all know how tragic this period was. Here it is presented to us through a huge canvas of characters from all walks of life with the political scene running alongside the family stories.
No doubt we will follow the same families throughout the series so get to know them now. It is not the most riveting of reads but a fascinating portrait of the period which I am sure will build to be thrilling. If you are reading electronically beware there are a good seventy pages of glossary once the tale is finished.

Shadow of War , the first of my new Great War series, is a long way from my quartet set in the distant past of the Anglo-Norman Middle-Ages but it is a journey I felt compelled to make. There are several reasons, not the least of which is that is the centenary of the outbreak of the war and the next five years may well be the last occasion when the conflict is at the forefront of national consciousness.

But I also had other reasons. I have read a fairly wide range of material about the war, but the almost countless tomes in the enormous library of the conflict, both fiction and non-fiction, contain numerous flaws and have created as many myths as they have offered truths. The Great War is too often sentimentalised, sensationalised, or over-simplified. Sarah Broadhurst. June The beginning of another long, prosperous summer for Britain. But beneath the clear skies, all is not as it seem - as the chill wind of social discontent swirls around this sceptred isle.
