    Tessa Dare is exceptional. I love the female friendships and how she writes hero/heroine interactions.

    I am somewhat missing Desiree by Anne-Marie Selinko in this line up especially when compared to Napoleon's romance novel Clisson and Eugenie which can only be termed narcissistic selfapologistic fiction.

    I feel like I'm missing a genre name for historical fiction with fantastical notions, I almost feel that it's often so believable, and often realistic; people participating in wiccan activities or other rituals..hmmm not sure I make much sense lol

    I absolutely loved The Mad Women's Ball and The Silence of the Girls, I think my current favourite historical fiction has to be Velvet Was The Night by Silvia Moreno Garcia, coming out 17th August, although that is more crime noir it is set in 1970s Mexico during the "Dirty War" also Pachinko by Min Jin Lee if that counts, although some is set during the present as it follows the family for multiple generations over almost 100 years

    The Wonder by Emma Donoghue is a book that's been staring at me from my shelves for a very long time already. Bought it on a whim and completely forgot about it. Hearing you explaining the book, made me decide to finally read it in September!

    Some of my favourite historical fiction:
    A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger (1380s London, follows John Gower playing detective, with side characters of Chaucer, and Eleanor Rykenor – a documented transgender prostitute)
    Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree by Tariq Ali (1499 Spain, follows a Muslim family after the “reconquest” of Spain, with the rise of the Spanish Inquisition and threat of Christianity)
    Possession by A.S. Byatt (split time period 1980s and 1800sish, follows two scholars as they uncover the relationship between two C19th poets, through letters, diary entries etc – writing is phenomenal)
    The Guernsey Literary and Potato PeelPie Society (postWW2, delightfully uplifting, quick, epistolary as a young author in London connects with a small society in guernsey who used her book to keep hope during the occupation)

    I read “Poor Things” for uni and it was so so good!
    I think you would enjoy “The Bell in The Lake” by Lars Mytting, the first book in a Norwegian historical fiction trilogy. It’s set in a remote Norwegian village in the 19th century, revolve around some folklore elements and has a strong female main character. And the second book also has some connections to Scotland!

    This is a great list! I thought the one about the girls who are miraculously surviving without food sounds interesting. But a lot of other good recommendations too

    I read the Incorrigibles in my late 40s and loved the whole series. Lumawoo!!! People who stick their noses up at middle grade miss out on so much.

    My favorite historical fiction novel is The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it.

    For me The Egyptian by Mika Waltari is still my favorite

    Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor! I had so much fun reading it, it's set in 17th century England but came out in the 1940s, fantastic read!

    The Essex Serpent is probably my favourite until now. I have a few historicals on my TBR so this could very well change.

    I agree about the Silence of the Girls – it's a book I'm still thinking about a year after reading it. Coincidentally, I picked up the Theodora Goss book from my library last week, just before my city locked down due to COVID. Looking forward to being distracted and diverted!
