In celebration of your 1 year anniversary (which will be this Friday) we thought we’d do a couple “fun” posts throughout the week. Let’s start with a poll! Emilie, Tricia and I have each come up with two characters from some of our favorite historical and historical fantasy books. Now what we want to know is if you could be one of them who would you choose and why? Share your reasons in the comments section!
Brief Book Descriptions:
THE THIEF: Set in a time similar to ancient Greece, this alternate history/fantasy story takes place in a Byzantine-like civilization.
THE WITCH OF BLACKBIRD POND: Set in 1687 New England. It’s about a girl who leaves her home in Barbados to live with her aunt and uncle in a small Puritan community in the Connecticut Colony.
SORCERY & CECELIA OR THE ENCHANTED CHOCOLATE POT: Set in 1817, this novel chronicles “the correspondence of two Young Ladies of Quality regarding various Magical Scandals in London and the Country.”
ALEX AND THE IRONIC GENTLEMAN: Set in a magical world, much like England in the 19th century, it’s about the swashbuckling adventures of a sixth-grade girl.
CATHERINE, CALLED BIRDY: Set in medieval England, it’s about a daughter of a minor nobleman who’s reached marriageable age.
HATTIE BIG SKY: Set in 1918 eastern Montana, it’s a bout a young sixteen-year-old orphan who decides to move by herself to her uncle’s abandoned homestead in Montana.
