I was in quandary on what to read. Thanks to this book, I am discovering books I would have passed on before. Some of the books are hard to find but worth the effort to locate.

A good guide to historical novels

It leaves out some historical novels that I would have put in such as Drums along the Mohawk. But it directed me to many that I had never heard of.

Good, helpful selection

I’m a bit of a fan of ‘titbit’ books that you can pick up; gain something useful from by way of inspiration, information, motivation and probably any other of a hundred other words ending in –ion; and put down without worrying about losing your place!
