Thanks Stacey! I'm on a wild goose hunt trying to find historical fiction with Jewish characters that are not stereotypical or anti-Semitic. The other issue I'm finding is that there are some works out there with Jewish protagonists, but they fall in love and convert. How droll.

Marcia, while I have a penchant for the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras, I think it only fair that you make the determination for yourself! By all means, include your works!

Sure! Why not? Add them to the list if you like. I'm just trying to stay away from Holocaust stories.
