Favorite Historical Fiction
Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain - The story of a young social worker and one her clients, Diane creates a powerful narrative that cannot be ignored. I love the idea of this woman, Jane, standing against everybody, even her new husband, for what she believes in. Based of true events, this story give an in-depth look into the human spirit and integrity of two very different women.
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston - Read in Honors English 11, this is a wonderful story about a woman doing her thing. After years of living in her husband's shadow, Janie finally decides to do Janie. Despite the gossip of her small southern town, Janie does whatever she wants and pays no mind to others. She definitely become one of my favorite female characters in literature after reading this beautiful story.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - Ditto! :)
