I always enjoy looking ahead to see what new books will be coming out, and this time I am focusing on the most anticipated historical fiction titles for Winter 2021, December through early March (I will also be compiling a Most Anticipated Historical Fiction of 2021 that will post soon). So many fabulous books are slated to be published in this time frame including a story about Virginia Hall’s time in occupied France, an all-female-led expedition to the Arctic, a garden in England, and a missing Romanov tiara. Here are my Most Anticipated Winter Historical Fiction books:
Surviving Savannah by Patti Callahan
Coming March 9, 2020
The steamship Pulaski (the “Titanic of the South”) sank in 1838 following a boiler explosion, and 180 years later the ship’s ruins have just been discovered. Everly Winthrop, Savannah history professor, is asked to help curate a new museum exhibit containing the artifacts recovered from the old ship, and she is thrilled to participate as well as curious to learn more about the night the ship went down. Alternating between the past and present, Callahan brings the story of the sinking of the Pulaski to life while exploring the various ways humans respond when confronting tragedy.
