Bookmark: Historical Fiction

Part of our Read-a-Thon 2010 highlight posts.

When I think of “Historical Fiction” I tend to think of either romance, or things set in medieval times or the Revolutionary war. Here are some great books from other time periods that keep the romance to a minimum and have wonderful stories.

The Golden Goblet

A tale of adventure and mystery set in Ancient Egypt. All ages.

Madeleine Takes Command

This one is set during the French and Indian War and features Madeleine, a 14-year-old girl who must help defend a fort against the Indians.


A story of high adventure set in Scotland during 1751. This is one of my personal favorites.

The Forest Runners

An adventurous story set during the settling of Kentucky.
