One of my sister's sent me a reading list for fans of Downton Abbey. Almost all of the books were nonfiction. Now I do like to read nonfiction but I think there are a lot of novels out there that can do an equally good job representing the time period.
For mysteries I like Anne Perry and Robin Paige. Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series includes lots of class struggles similar to the what we see on D.A. Paige's mysteries include some real-life characters and early "CSI" developments like photography and fingerprints. Both are great beach and airplane reading.
Do you have any recommendations for historical novels or mysteries set in the first quarter of the 20th century?
Back to quilts...can you believe someone found this quilt top in a dumpster?
That sort of thing never happens to me...
the fabrics in it are really interesting and once it got a good washing it is in great shape!
