Historical fiction readers and fans looking for new reading material will enjoy browsing through this book and using it for checklists or reading plans. Readers' advisors who wish to better acquaint themselves with the genre and its newer publications, particularly in terms of appeal features, will find it useful as well

Book News
Hooper provides a nicely annotated bibliography of recent and classical fiction organized into common-sense categories. In this format, which accommodates the needs of both the library professional and the general reader, Hooper takes the time and print to find the attractions of the hundreds of titles while providing abstracts that are short and concise. He covers settings such as old New York, the classical world, lost worlds of privilege and exotic locals, characters including royals, rebels and unlikely rebels, stories set in the domestic sphere as well as in war, languages ranging from the dreamy to the fictional autobiography, and moods including nostalgia, inspiration and humor. Hooper also makes sure to cover all ages and ethnicities of adult readers. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
