Did That Really Happen?? Read the True Stories Behind Your Favorite Historical Fiction

Posted on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 by shoshanalibrarian

As a lover of both history and fiction, I naturally love historical fiction!  Often a good historical novel will pique my interest in the true story.  The Tudors have inspired countless novels as well as non-fiction (and the prolific Alison Weir writes both!).  Egyptian history has always fascinated me, especially women like Cleopatra and Nefertiti.  Finally, I recently read and very much enjoyed The Paris Wife; for Hemingway's point of view of those years, see his memoir, The Moveable Feast.
