It has been a while since I posted a Saturday Suggestion (Saturday Suggestions are to highlight a book, series, or author that I have read in the past, before I started blogging). This week I want to share with you a fantastic historical fiction author, Gillian Bradshaw. I started reading her books years ago when I discovered her Arthurian Trilogy:Hawk of May, Kingdom of Summer and In Winter's Shadow
Hawk of May was her first book, published in 1980, and she finished the first draft of that novel when she was only seventeen!
She also has written a number of novels set in Ancient Rome or the Ancient World. I've enjoyed all of them but I think Island of Ghosts is my favorite:
Island of Ghosts: A Novel of Roman Britain
Alchemy of Fire
Horses of Heaven
Render Unto Caesar
The Beacon at Alexandria
The Bearkeeper's Daughter
The Wolf Hunt
There are several newer titles that I haven't read yet (but can't wait to get my hands on!):
London in Chains: An English Civil War Novel
The Sun's Bride
If you love historical fiction and are looking for something new, give one of these novels a try. I recommend them! You will find Gillian Bradshaw's website here.
