The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory. Phillipa Gregory is a great storyteller. I think The Other Boleyn Girl is one of her best.

Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. It's based on the love affair between Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Borthwick.

The Navigator of New York by Wayne Johnston. Based on the race for the North Pole between Cook and Peary but the story is about a young man from Newfoundland who is basically trying to find where he belongs among his family and these explorers. I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did!

Hmmm... I wouldn't have considered Loving Frank historical fiction. But I guess it is. I read it last year. I didn't even realize until the end that it was based on facts!
