Historically Speaking—Historical Fiction Picks

Although I have a Master’s in history, I do not read as much historical fiction as I did in my younger years.

But here are a few must-read historical novels I will add to my summer reading list—

Hearts That Survive by Yvonne Lehmann—about the Titanic
Promise Me This by Cathy Gohlke—about the Titanic
Are you sensing a theme here?
Roanoke by Angela Hunt—we North Carolinians like to keep up with our favorite history mystery

• anything by Julie Lessman—one of my favorite romance writers who also draws me into her WWI/1920s era Boston world

What about you? Any great historical fiction you’d suggest?

Later this week, my picks for women’s fiction.

  1. WHOA, Lisa, I gotta tell you that you just made my day, girl — THANK YOU SOOO VERY MUCH!! Especially mentioning my name along with the likes of Cathy Gohlke, Yvonne Lehmann and Angela Hun — WOW!! I can tell you right now that Promise Me This is absolutely one of the best historicals I have read in the Christian market today and I actually endorsed it — PROUDLY!! Another historical author that you MUST check out is Laura Frantz, especially my favorite of hers, The Colonel’s Lady — outstanding!!

    Thank you again, my friend, for the shout out — it blessed the socks off of me!


    • Thanks for reminding me about The Colonel’s Lady by Laura Frantz. I will add her to my list. I read The Frontiersman’s Daughter and became a fan.

      I enjoyed your A Kiss is Not Just a Kiss workshop in St. Louis. Hope our paths with cross in Dallas.
