In our latest installment of the “Greatest Of” lists, we submit for your viewing pleasure: Greatest Historical Fiction Novels of all time (that we’ve read).
Nothing new to report other than the same challenges we previously confronted when consolidating our two independent lists into one. Same groveling. Same gnashing of teeth. Same spirited finale with Evan left weeping in the fetal position. Chin up… off to the list!
