My favorite changes daily, but I guess it would have to be Mistress of the Art of Death (historical mystery) at the moment.

Wow, Teddy, do I have to pick one? Historical fiction, eh? Gone With the Wind is the first one that comes to mind. The Good Earth is another one.

My favorite historical fiction novel changes pretty much whenever I read another one, but I do really like Hilary Mantel's A Place of Greater Safety.

Also, on another note, was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a Rosie's Riveters post over at BookLust. Would love to see who you come up with!

My favorite historical novel is The Other Boleyn Girl

It so hard to pick just one! If it's strictly historical, and can't include Arthurian, I'll go with Sharon Kay Penman's When Christ and His Saints Slept. But really, it's just one of many!
I'm looking forward to reading The Tudor Rose -- thanks for the chance to win a copy.
