The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, This story takes place in the times of The bible with characters from history. But it is a fictional story. Like going back in time.

The Red Tent - Anita Diamant - I really didn't want to read this one as I'm not much on the biblical premise, but this book about ancient womanhood, focusing on the four wives of Jacob, and daughter Dinah, provides wonderful insight into early history.

The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory. Audiobook read by Susan Lyons. Started 12/13/12. Finished 12/22/12. So much better than either of the film adaptations. Written from Mary Boleyn's POV, the book takes a very unflattering stand on Anne Boleyn and incorporates many of the legends that have been proven false. But still a great story. 4 stars.

Philippa Gregory is one of my favorite authors. I've read most of her books, maybe even all of them, and I started with.The Other Bolyn Girl, Philippa Gregory

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. An awesome insight into the lives of those Japanese Americans affected by World War II Internment Camps. My husband's grandfather and his family suffered the injustice of this as well.
