    Thanks so much for this great list of recommendations! I'm a huge historical fiction fan and I’m currently reading “Turkoise” by Joan M. Sargent. If you go to her website, http://jmsargent.com/, you can find out more about her and the book. It’s truly captivating, and I highly recommend it! I’ve been looking for another book for when I’m finished with this one and with your list, I think I've found a bunch to pick from! Thanks again!

    1. Ah, that's so lovely to hear!
      I would definitely recommend VIII, Vice and Virtue, The Great Gatsby, Beautiful Days and The Lady in the Tower if you're a fan of historical fiction :)
