I am convinced that life in a physical body is meant to be an ecstatic experience ~ Shakti Gawain
From an early age, I escaped the real world through books. I spend many a summer in the library while other kids were outside playing. And that was in the 70s & 80s long before the Internet!
Now, I escape the adult world by reading. As you might have guessed, I am a fan of historicals.
I grew up reading many stories about life on the post-Civil War plains. I guess that’s what they taught us in Nebraska in the 1970s and early 1980s. There wasn’t the Young Adult genre there is now, so I cut my teeth on Laura Ingalls Wilder, then went straight to sagas like Roots and John Jakes’ North and South Trilogy. Now, I love a good gay historical romance. Not only do I like history, but just thinking about how gay characters might deal with their world and their reality in their time is fascinating to me.
Right now I’m reading A Tested Love by Kayla Jameth, but I definitely will read A Prince’s Psalm by Eric Shaw Quinn when it comes out in June.
How about you? What is a favorite historical time period or tell me shat’s on your Late Spring/Early Summer reading list?
