ABC Historical Fiction Challenge
From Historical Tapestry's Blog
Each fortnight you have to write a blog post about an historical fiction book of your choice (it might even be something you already read before), but it MUST be related to the letter of the fortnight.
You have several possibilities:
- the first letter of the title
- the first letter of the author's first name or surname
- the first letter of a character's first name or surname
- the first letter of a place where an historical event took place
You just have to choose one of them and participate.
Please check our blog each 1st and 15th of the month to find out our new letter, and then link your post (not your blog) back to our page through Mr Linky (see below). Then come and check to see who else has posted and visit their blog to find out all the details of the book they were reading.
This month the letter is:

The book I am reading is: Etta, by Gerald Koplan
The book I am reading for F is Mistress of the Revolution, by Catherine Delors.
The book I am reading for G is The Confessions of Catherine de Medici, by C. W. Gortner.
The book I am reading for H is The Heretic Queen, by Michelle Moran.
For the letter P, my choice is Darcy's Voyage, by Kara Louise. The reason I have selected this book is that the setting takes place on the ship Pemberley's Promise, and is a retell of Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
