Historical Fiction Roundup

These six new and forthcoming titles are perfect for your patrons who love historical fiction:

THE LAST PAINTING OF SARA DE VOS by Dominic Smith
Three stars for this “mystery of the heart” (New York Times) that deftly bridges the historical and the contemporary, tracking a collision course between a rare landscape by a female Dutch painter of the golden age, an inheritor of the work in 1950s Manhattan, and a celebrated art historian who painted a forgery of it in her youth. “In [Smith’s] hands, the damp cobblestones and canals of 1600s Holland and the shabby gentility of Eisenhower-era New York feel as real and tactile and tinged with magic as de Vos’ indelible brushstrokes.” — Entertainment Weekly

MOUNT PLEASANT by Patrice Nganang
“Cameroonian writer Nganang delivers a modern epic, tinged with liberal doses of magical realism, of life in his country’s colonial era. An elegantly drawn and engaging world of a sort unknown to most readers—but one they’ll be glad to have visited.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE MIDNIGHT WATCH by David Dyer
A dramatic debut novel about the sinking of the Titanic, and the crew of the nearby SS Californian who could have saved its passengers. “Dyer’s elegant, imaginative renderings captivate, and his expansive research—including exclusive access to legal documents—makes this colossal disaster newly enthralling.”
