The Most Reviewed Historical Fiction of the Past Three Years

For those of us with a taste for it, historical fiction scratches an itch that no other genre can quite reach. By crossing the wires of creative imagination with rigorous research, historical fiction authors can generate a kind of time travel effect. It's a magic trick that happens somewhere between the page and your eyes.

Here we've collected the most reviewed historical fiction books on Goodreads from the past three years. The idea being: These are books that people have actually read, and really liked, and that's the heart of recommendation, isn't it?
