Historical Fiction: England's Second Civil War and Restoration

I'm finding this period fascinating and always on the hunt for new or long forgotten novels set in this period.

message 1: by Barb (new)

Barb I voted...
but I've only read one of these books so my vote is
basically meaningless.
This is a nice list though, have you put it up on Listmanina?


message 2: by Misfit (last edited Dec 09, 2009 12:37PM) (new)

Misfit Not yet, but I will when I get a chance. I see Susan's been through, I knew she'd have some ideas.


message 3: by Alison (new)

Alison Stuart I don't think My Cousin Rachel belongs in this list. It's set in the nineteenth century isn't it?


message 4: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Aug 18, 2011 10:18AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Uh, Pepys' Diary isn't fiction. It's a period source. (Mind you, a good read!)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You want me to remove My Cousin Rachel, Misfit?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Removed My Cousin Rachel (definitely 19th century).


message 7: by Alice-Anne (new)

Alice-Anne I love this era too and have added some great books that tell stories from time from different angles. Enjoy!
