Here are two novels readers who enjoy suspense and action will love, set in two different time periods.
Strictly speaking the Regency Period in English history was between 1811 and 1820, but Regency authors tend to include stories that transpire during almost any part of the nineteenth century. Two books that fall loosely into the Regency period are Brass Carriages and Glass Hearts by Nancy Campbell Allen and A Foreign Crown by Jen Geigle Johnson.
Though their covers make these two novels appear to be typical Regency Romances, the stories are far from typical. The Heiress of All Things Beautiful by Anita Stansfield reveals a darker side of the Regency era that continues in our day. Esther Hatch in A Proper Charade introduces a lovely young bombshell heroine who sets out to prove she's as capable as her brother.
These stories will inspire a greater appreciation and respect of our country through history from the beginning with inspired men involved in its inception to wars and great people. The first five books are picture books and good for all ages. All books should be read by all from ages nine through adult, unless otherwise indicated.
