SHE – The Forgotten Epoch by Dr Santosh Singh

Dr. Santosh Singh is a master at getting into the minds of historical figures; she takes the events and narrates them from the perspective of how the said character may have perceived them. She knows her material inside and out, and on top of that, she has an ear for dialogue pacing and an eye for detail.

The Indian Emerald by Archana Pathak

The Indian Emerald is an uplifting, atmospheric, informative tale about taking chances, moving on, and discovering one’s true self. I highly recommend it to fans of historical fiction with dual timelines.

Every Star in the Sky by Danielle Singleton

Every Star in the Sky is an intensely romantic story of the power of true love across time, across social conventions, and ultimately conquering all. The story is very simple and easy to read, but it captivates and touches the reader in a profound way. The love between Rebecca and Richard, from the time they first met to the end, is overwhelming.

The Glimpse by Lis Bensley

The Glimpse is a novel that delves into the intricacies and angst that undoubtedly burns through some relationships - maybe none more so than mother and daughter. At its core, this story explores the notion that being a mother doesn’t mean being perfect; it comes down to love, sacrifice and sheer will.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was a really clever gradual unfolding of friendship and the suffering undergone by the captive population of Guernsey during the occupation of the Third Reich during the early 1940's.

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn reads as a fascinating piece of historical fiction torn between the events of World War I and post-World War II France. Despite a few criticisms, it's quite a page-turning gem that illuminates the unfortunate German-occupied France time periods with real and historical characters brought to life in a believable fashion. If anyone has read Kristin Hannah's 'The Nightingale,' they will enjoy this book, and vice versa.

Schindler’s List by Thomas Keneally

Thomas Keneally's Schindler's List (or Schindler's Ark) is an account of how the Nazi member and industrialist Oskar Schindler rescued over a thousand Jews from very probable death from at Auschwitz, by protecting them as workers at his enamel ware factory. Thomas Keneally won the Man Booker Prize for Schindler's List in 1982.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is not just romance, though romance is a big part of it and it's one of the best things about it. This book is about seeing the gap of generations, seeing how in 200 hundred years so many things have changed, not only epochal, but also people.. People have changed, their ways of mind and heart are completely different and Claire is forced to adapt or die.
