  1. I like how the Scarlet Lion makes a reference to the Scarlet Letter. Also, the book by Bernard Cornwell looks intriguing – Cornwell being hailed as the greatest living historical adventure writer today makes me definitely interested. One book that could be added to Christmas lists in the historical fiction section would be Blood, Money, Power by Andria Corso. It jumps through two different time periods, and involves subtle struggles for wealth amongst three generations of a family.

  2. Cornwell is by far my favorite historical fiction author. I have enjoyed all the books I’ve read by him. I haven’t read the one you mention, “Blood, Money, and Power.” I tend to mostly read only historical fiction set in the medieval period. Occasionally, I read a novel outside that period for fun, but my main focus of study lies in medieval western Europe, mostly England and France.
