I absolutely adore Diana Gabaldon's and Philippa Gregory's novels but I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for any books with a similar genre and style?

The usual historical/adventure/romantic sort of thing? :smileyhappy:

Re: Recommendations?

Hi Isolde, (love the name!)


I adore Diana Gabaldon's books...I'm a huge fan!  I can't wait for "An Echo in the Bone" to come out.  


You may want to look into the following:


Jean Auel (Clan of the Cavebear series)

The Mists of Avalon

Here be Dragons (Sharon Kay Penman)

Anything by Anya Seton (Katherine, The Wintrop Woman, Devil Water)

The Far Pavilions (M.M. Kaye)


Also, since you like Philippa could try Allison Weir (Innocent Traitor and The Lady Elizabeth).


Happy Reading!!!


PS- Have you read any of DG's "Lord John" series??
