Amandasaved Hello all!

Are there any books that you know of that are set in either Philadelphia or London? I live in and travel to and from these cities annually and I am very curious as to what historical novels take place in these towns. It seems with Christian fiction a lot of novels takes place in small towns.

Amandasaved I've read "A lady of high devotion" and the other ladies books in that series and the pace was a bit slow for my taste, although the over all story was good. I'll Have to look into the Falcon and the Sparrow.

Now no one knows of any novels which take place in Philadelphia?

It is England and France, I'm pretty sure the main city is London...

There's Actually four in the series. She wrote the fourth one later. I'll have to look through my other books to see if there are more

Amandasaved Oh wonderful! I am always on the look out to see books set in Philadelphia, and I love the 1920s. I'll have to look into that.

Linore (linrose) | 10 comments My two books are set in London. Before the Season Ends, and, The House in Grosvenor Square. The third book, (which can be pre-ordered, but won't be out until January) is set in Middlesex, which is traveling distance from London, even during the Regency. I think Margaret has read both the books, and really liked them. (Right, Margaret?) : )

Jennifer (jennafraugh) | 313 comments Yep, it's just the second book that is set in Philadelphia. Each book tells the story of a family having to deal with the reprecussions of the Great War. It's a good series despite the fact they all aren't set in Philadelphia

I have yet to get my hands on the second one, but I have and love the first one. :)

Linore (linrose) | 10 comments Thanks, Margaret!
Are you a writer too? Right now is a great time to get the second one, because I'm running a contest for writers. Anyone who emails me a receipt for any of my books is entered in a drawing for a full free edit from me--up to 300 pages.
And besides--lots of people like the second one better than the first! So don't wait--I'd love to know your opinion!!
Thanks, and hugs,
Linore

Jennifer (jennafraugh) | 313 comments The last book in The Carolina Cousin Series by Michael Phillips is set in Philadelphia too. Well, they don't start out there, but they travel by train there. All about the KKK and the south's mentality and slavery.

Nope, just an avid reader and book review blogger.
