Historical Fiction Blog Hop

I’m delighted to introduce you to the Historical Fiction Blog Hop which is taking place throughout June and July. There will be lots of interviews with characters from some great historical fiction. Some you will love and quite possibly some you will love to hate!

First up for me is Eleanor Elder – the heroine of Derek Birks’ series set in the Wars of the Roses. I have mixed feelings about Eleanor – some traits of her character I like and admire, but there is one aspect that disappoints me. Just as in real life I like My friends to like my other friends, in fiction I like to find that characters I have sympathy with share my feelings about real historical characters. Sadly, although I am a Riccardian, Eleanor isn’t. I guess you need to read the books and judge for yourself whether she is justified in disliking him…
