I love to learn new things and because I wasn’t a real good history student as a kid, I find that I learn so much from historical fiction as an adult. This book was no exception. I was fascinated by the information that the author provided about the Bow Street Runners. Why wasn’t history this interesting when I was learning it in school. πŸ˜‰

  1. Thank you for the chance to win a book on my TBR list thanks to your wonderful review.

  2. I can’t recall anything I have recently learned, as I have not recently read a historical fiction book; but I enjoy historical fiction and would love to win a copy of this book. I have read one other of Michelle’s books and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for the giveaway.

    1. This was my first fiction book by Michelle, but I read her non-fiction book for writers and I loved her sense of humor. Thanks for commenting Evangeline. πŸ™‚

  3. In a recent historical book I read, I learned more on the hardships during the civil war era. You think you know and understand the difficult times, but when you read an accurate, detailed account of it, then you realize you can’t fathom the difficulties our ancestors had to live through to make this great country of ours.

    1. I know I have trouble wrapping my mind around the difficulties that our ancestors faced. Thanks for commenting Kay. πŸ™‚

  4. I recently read a book that was about the founding and history of a town near where I grew up. I had no idea why it was settled by the group who settled it, and it was interesting (and frustrating) to learn the reasons that these people left their homeland and came to America. Like so many other groups, they came to the U.S. to avoid religious persecution. They then forgot, 130 years later, to extend that same welcome to those around them who are of other faiths. Kind of interesting and kind of sad.

  5. I am currently reading The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse. She has done her research and then some. Although fictional she is using real names of people who traveled on the Mayflower in 1620. The main characters however are fictional. It is truly interesting and the author gives lots of background information before the story begins.
    Thank you for the giveaway.

    1. I love it when historical fiction writers use real events or people in their work. It adds a realness to many stories. Thanks for sharing Gail. πŸ™‚

  6. I learned alot about children relocated to England during WW2 from Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson

  7. I just recently read All She Left Behind by Jane Kirkpatrick, a fictional based true life story about Jeannie Pickett who wanted to be a doctor in the 1870’s. It was amazing to learn about her and her struggles & hardships that shaped who she was and all she did to open up the medical world for women in history! I learned a lot through the pages of this book. I also love that Jane writes true life accounts from various sources–in this case from the diary of Jennie and other documents. Her research is impeccable and her stories breathe new life into little known women in history! I always enjoy learning new things when I read her books!

    I recommend this to you Loraine, if you haven’t read it! πŸ™‚

  8. I learned that George Washington didn’t allow his bodyguards to be taller than 6 foot 2. Interesting in that this book is also about bodyguards. I read your review on this book and now I really have to read it too. It has the romance and character relationships I love.

    1. Oh that is such an interesting thing to find out Danielle. I didn’t know that about Washington. Thanks for sharing it with us. πŸ™‚

  9. Recently I read and enjoyed greatly The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz. What struck me the most was how dangerous it was in the very early days of America fighting for independence. I was also struck by how self-reliant people were back then. I don’t think I would have survived the time too well.

    1. Welcome to my website Nicole. I have enjoyed some of Laura’s stories. I often wonder how I would handle living in past times, especially since I am so used to technology. πŸ™‚ Thanks for commenting.

  10. I just read Roseanna White’s A Song Unheard and learned a lot about what was going on in England and Belgium around the time of WWI. I also recently read The Keeper of Her Heart by Stacy Henrie which was set in England during that time. I’m now reading Carrie Turansky’s Across the Blue which is set in England in the early 1900s. I’m gaining a lot of insight about that time period in England and Europe. It’s fascinating.

    1. Roseanna’s book is high on my TBR list. I loved her first book in that series, ‘A Name Unknown’. I learned a lot about WWI from it. Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  11. I haven’t read one very recently; the last few books I’ve read have been contemporary romances. I do love learning about locations I’ve never been to. Books that take place in cities or countries I have yet to visit just make me long to go there and experience the culture and restaurants/food of the area.

  12. It was amazing to me to learn from Tamera Alexander’s books how long it took for the south to recover from the Civil War in so many ways; socially, mentally, physically, financially, emotionally, and on so many other levels. She is an amazing writer! It also amazes me how many of us modern day people complain about the smallest problems and have a hard time trusting God for leading. Our ancestors went through much more than we could ever imagine and held firmly to their faith and hope for the future.

    1. I just cannot image living through something like the Civil War. I’m glad that we can learn about these things through our favorite authors aren’t you Jan? Thanks for commenting. πŸ™‚

  13. The Lost Heiress has taught me about early sports cars and about Monaco. I hadn’t read anything set there before.

    1. Oh that sounds really interesting Connie. I have that book on my shelf, but I haven’t read it yet. It looks like I need to move that one up. πŸ™‚

  14. I just read The Maid of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klaussen and I learned more about midwives and nursing in the early years and also the attitudes of people in the upper classes toward unwed mothers.

  15. I learned from one of Michelle’s earlier books set in England that windows in homes were something to be taxed!

  16. I’ve learned recently about a mysterious and amazing place known as the “shell grotto” in Kent, England. No one knows how it came to be or who created it! I’d LOVE to visit one day!
    Coincidentally, I’ve read of this place two times (in two books by two different authors!) within a few months, though I’d never heard of it before! Ironic, isn’t it?

    1. That is really neat Elly. Perhaps it’s a sign that you need to learn more about the place. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for sharing.

  17. I learned the name of Robert E. Lee’s horse, Traveller, from reading historical fiction.

  18. I learned that the Wright brothers took their plane to La Mans, France to showcase it. They were very secretive back in the U.S. I am reading Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky.

  19. How much the French were used like garbage during WWII by the Germans plus about the use of the Pyrenees as an escape route using women as the lead/go-between. ~ The Nightingale, highly recommend
