  1. Hallo, Hallo Historical readers! :)

    I am finally able to make my way through the routes of both January + February - starting TODAY! I've been wanting to travel to your lovely blogs but due to health & life woes, I've been unable to til now. If you've stopped by my blog, I hope you've enjoyed the thoughts I've been sharing about the stories I've been reading. I look forward to engaging with you!

    Of late - I've found some quite magical reads to disappear inside including finishing the last two #SevenSistersSeries novels earlier in Feb: The Shadow Sister & The Pearl Sister - I am so hugged inside the series I am itching for the next in sequence but will remain humbly patient as I know how hard it is to write a series with this depth of continuity!

    More recently, I've been reading the #SamuelCraddock series but I didn't link them as I can't trace which 'era' their set inside!? They feel mid-century contemporary - but they could be only a few decades in the past, say the 80s? So, since I'm uncertain of that I've not added them but if you like dramatic crime stories with a keenly sharp lead, please visit those reviews - I've posted several and I have another one coming before March!

    Next, my joys as a reader were happily consumed by "The Forgotten Girl" based on the author's great-grandparents - so this is a very personal Biological Historical Fiction entry! Very emotionally stirring and heart-centred about how her relative not only had a dramatic immigration story to share but proves how hard-won courage and the faith to change your path in life can be to embrace.

    Lastly, I added my listening of an after canon story of Sherlock Holmes as to me, those are organically 'historical' - this writer truly impressed me for how he inserts us so readily into the canon of Sir Arthur and maintains the continuity therein! I am quite particular about these sequels... so for me this was a keen find! Only two others have convinced me of reading their stories: Laurie R. King (Mary Russell) & Nancy Spring (Enola Holmes).

    I wonder what everyone else has been reading?! Eagerly hopping round your blogs now...

  2. I left it a bit late to get mine in. I read Mrs Shakespeare by Robert Nye.

  3. The last review I posted (A Fist Around the Heart) was published on March 2nd but I read it in February so posted here.
