Alessandra Hullo, just checking. By "fantastic" do you mean "very good"? Or are elements of fantasy permitted?


message 2: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Oh, I mean wonderful, terrific, amazing. good point, lol. I'll change that,


message 3: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady @Lauren
European setting or European author? Or both?

Both.

Thanks!

I've deleted my addition of English Passengers, as only a very, very small part of it is set in Europe.

I have also removed The Thorn Birds (Australian author) Forever Amber (American author), The Help (American setting and author), The Age of Innocence (American author), Dragonwyck (American author) and Gone with the Wind (American setting and author).

Should there be any other books which do not qualilfy, just let me know and I'll remove them.


message 6: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady @Lauren
It might not be a bad idea to add to the description that both author and setting should be European.


message 7: by Lauren (new)

Lauren At this point, I'm tempted to to just nix the European criteria all together. I made this list a while back and didn't know that so many people would respond to it and vote on it. I'd love for it to be open, so I'm going to do that.


message 8: by Booklovinglady (last edited Feb 21, 2017 04:36AM) (new)

Booklovinglady Well, that opens more possibilities for me too.... Pity I've already removed some of the titles which, due to the changed description, are now valid.

Be aware though that now that you've changed the description, there are several other lists concerning the same subject (Best Historical Fiction and Recommended Historical Fiction come to mind, for instance).
