Welcome to Absolute Bookishness!
Ever wonder what life was like way back when? The sights, sounds, smells? The hopes, the fears? Ever been curious as to how we got to the here and now? (Or, are you just a fan of old movies? TCM? AMC?…You get the point. That’s okay, too.) Then, historical fiction might be just the thing for you.
Historical fiction books help us explore all this and more. Great stories reach out to audiences of all ages and draw us in. Helping us empathize with people of the past, relate to them in ways we might not fully achieve by reading more impersonal accounts in history books–or history lessons in school.
So let’s travel the reaches of distance and time, discovering what life was like together, one book at a time.
