Today it is Top Ten Tuesday freebie and we can choose any topic we want, so I will go for my top ten historical fiction books.
I like historical fiction that has at least some sort of realistic connection to the time it is talking about, maybe a real event that the story builds upon, or real people whose story is told in a fictional way. So, here we go…
