REFERENCE LIBRARY

MY REFERENCE LIBRARY

For those of you who might be interested in some background reading around my historical novels, here is a list of the books I’ve read while researching for my historical novels. I own most of these, but some of them I obtained from my local library and then kept renewing – for many months. Some of them are very old, second-hand bookshop or online finds, so have no ISBN numbers. I’ve tried to group them as best I can for you!
