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