Christina (chold) | 99 comments Aw well you're definitely not near Buffalo then. :) Sometimes I forget how huge Canada is, because I've only really explored through Ontario. I've been dying to visit Montreal and Vancouver, though. Someday.

Janny (jannywurts) | 142 comments Hi Samantha -

A few top favorite historicals that I've loved, which all had exceptional writing and research include

King Hereafter by Dorothy Dunnett a historical view of MacBeth
The Horsemen by Joseph Kessel (took place in Afghanistan)
A Free Man of Color by Barbara Hambly (set in New Orleans)
And most recently, a historical/modern crossover written with first hand experience, in Cornwall and the Barbary Coast, (1750) The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson

I'd enjoy hearing of your favorites, too.
