"I am primarily using Goodreads to catalogue my books, particularly my research books. I hope that the lists available here will be of use to other authors of historical fiction. I have not necessarily read every portion of each research book, but Goodreads gives no 'partially read' option! My favourite fiction is included just for fun!"

Lesley-Anne McLeod has loved all things British--from history and geography to art and literature--for longer than she can remember. After years of bookselling and non-fi

There were no trains, no cars, no airplanes. There were no inter-city buses, but there were plenty of post coaches in Regency England. For the vast majority of people, private carriages and chaises were out of the question. Public coaches were their only means of traveling around the country.

Mail coaches were the most well-known of passenger carriers. This advertisement (my apologies for the po... Read more of this blog post »

“Jane Austen’s world is a unique wedge of history, immortalized by her wonderful books. It is ironic that I am fascinated by the Regency world in all its details, when Jane Austen seldom mentions any of those facts. She never mentions the war raging in Europe, her characters are apparently unaware of the industrialization shortly to overtake them. The revolution of steam travel does not touch her people–they travel by coach, horse, and foot.” and “There is no doubt that Austen herself was aware of the world around her and its imminent change. But her characters live in the world of the family, the village and the heart–and are loved because of it. The trappings of the greater world do not impinge on Jane Austen’s books.”
