blueemerald Greetings-
I've been a voracious reader for decades, especially historical fiction, especially multi-generational family sagas. What a fun list this is to have discovered. Several new singles/series I have been haven't known of. Thanks to all the author and contributors!

I just finished editing a lengthy historical fiction series reading list. It has a section devoted to Family Sagas. I'm posting the link in hopes someone will discover new reads to enjoy:

Donna Davis Removed for not being a family saga or a novel: The People's History of the United States.


message 5: by Kirsten (new)

Kirsten Rodning I'm super surprised that The Poisonwood Bible isn't higher on this list... it's not even in the top 100!


message 6: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis Removed for being a memoir--nonfiction--on a fiction-only list:
