What era or setting would you like to see more of in historical fiction?
Here are our responses:
Kelly: I always wished for more books set in WWI. I am happy that with the 100 year anniversary not too far away more books are appearing on the shelves. I always wished historical fiction was more branched out, though. There is a 'fad' and that is all you see. I start looking for the books that are different in that case. It doesn't necessarily matter what. I just like things once in a while that haven't been explored to death.
Nanette: I'd love to see more books set in ancient Rome or ancient Greece, and I've really enjoyed the few historical novels that I've read that are set in the Middle East, especially during the Middle Ages.
Marg: I am not sure that it is eras as a whole that I wish I could read more about. Instead it is individual figures from history. For example, it always surprises me that there is so little written about people like Catherine the Great, or Florence Nightingale. I think I would also love to read something about Prince Rupert of the Rhine.
