Six new must-read historical fiction novels

At B & N Reads Nicole Hill tagged six of the best new titles in historical fiction, including:
Of Irish Blood, by Mary Pat Kelly

Bringing the action closer to our time period is Nora Kelly, a lively and scrappy Irish-American heroine fleeing an abusive relationship. In the sequel to Mary Pat Kelly’s Galway Bay, Nora, ever plucky, winds up in Paris on the eve of World War I. There she encounters an astounding array of characters from the 20th century, including but not limited to: Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, and Henri Matisse. She also finds a little romance in the guise of a hunky academic and adventure in the form of Irish revolutionaries. It’s a tale to make tongues wag.
