Six Picks: Historical Fiction

Abbe and Emma give six recommendations for stories that imagine the past as it might have been.

Who doesn’t love a story from the past… especially one with a little creative license? Historical fiction explores the richness of history by taking elements of the past that are well-established facts and fleshing them out with beautiful, imaginative fiction. Historical fiction can use a well-known historical event as its backdrop, borrow a real person from history and flesh our their life, or include a long list of details from history in a sequence of fictional events.

Watch the video below for Emma and Abbe’s favorite reading recommendations that help us travel back to bygone eras in far-away places!
