  1. We have read so many historical fiction books, I am not sure I would want to go back in time to any of those settings, many of which were pretty scary and violent times. Think about One Thousand White Women, Sarah’s Key, The Heretic’s Daughter, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Beneath a Marble Sky and the Book Thief to name a few. As interesting as it was to be placed in those worlds, through the stories of the characters, would you really want to experience them for yourself? I guess, each time I read a book of this kind, I was always left, feeling so grateful that we live in different times and circumstances. I was appreciative to be able to visit those settings, in a virtual way.

    Having said all that, I recently read “The French Gardener” by Santa Montefiore, which takes place in contemporary times, mostly in the garden and garden cottage of an English country house. Being a garden lover, that would definitely be a setting where I would like to spend some time. If you have not read this book, it is a great summer read… think about putting it on your list for this summer.
