Simon Hi All,

My favorite genre is historical fiction so have decided to attempt a historical fiction “trip around the world”.

Below are the countries I’ve been to and the corresponding book that matches that country:

Russia: The Romanov Empress: A Novel of Tsarina Maria Feodorovna

Italy: Oil and Marble: A Novel of Leonardo and Michelangelo

New Zealand: The Parihaka Woman

Australia: Jewel Sea

Austria: The Last Train to London

Germany: The German Midwife

Poland: The Dollmaker of Krakow

India: The Henna Artist

France: Mademoiselle Chanel

Monaco: Meet Me in Monaco

Iceland: Burial Rites

United States (North/South Carolina):

North Carolina: The Moonshiner's Daughter: A Southern Coming-Of-Age Saga of Family and Loyalty

South Carolina: The Indigo Girl

Ireland: The Irishman's Daughter

Simon Hi Rosemarie,

I started this back in March with my new Kobo due to the pandemic. Thought it would really be something I could do to pass the time since no one’s sure how long this will last for.

Right now, I am in England with “The Queen’s Secret: A Novel of England’s WWII Queen” by Karen Harper.

Thank you! I see my trip is very different lol from other people's on here, as I am doing historical fiction only, and others are doing books from any genre from various countries.

Simon Hey all,

Forgot to update my "Trip around the world" via historical fiction since last time.

Since my last post on July 19, 2020, I finished my trip to England with The Queen's Secret: A Novel of England's World War II Queen. I've gone back to Renaissance Italy with Raphael, Painter in Rome by Stephanie Storey.
