historical fiction

There has been a lot in the news lately about the centennial celebration of the right to vote for women, our 19th Amendment. According to the Women's Vote Centenniel Initiative, "this historic centennial offers an unparalleled opportunity to commemorate a milestone of democracy and to explore its relevance to the issues of equal rights today." Quite a milestone, too!  And, because I am almost exclusively a fiction reader, my mind goes to Tracy Chevalier's Falling Angels, which explores the class distinctions and social divisions in turn-of-the-century England.  The fight for women's right to vote divides two characters, as does class does. 

Kristin Hannah’s new book, The Four Winds, has been highly recommended by every librarian’s resource and anxious friend that wants to spread the word. When I went to check on the status of my holds, I found that I was number 66 on hold for the e-book on Overdrive/Libby – and that is for 32 copies that we own! In light of that, I want to find something to tide me over until it becomes available.
