Reader Bridget contacted us with the following request:
I was wondering if you had any suggestions for books circa the Revolutionary War and colonial era? I have read several books about those topics by Ann Rinaldi, who I love, and Laurie Halse Anderson.
Here are the books we would recommend, some of which we have greatly enjoyed:
Midwife of The Blue Ridge by Christine Blevins
The Tory Widow by Christine Blevins
The Turning of Anne Merrick by Christine Blevins
Hearts and Bones by Margaret Lawrence
The Winthrop Woman by Anya Seton
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
City of Dreams: a novel of Niew Amsterdam by Beverly Swerling
Shadowbrook by Beverly Swerling
Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks
Into the Wilderness series by Sara Donati
Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon (the later books in particular)
Anyone has other suggestions?
