I'm not familiar with these at all, so I just looked them up. I think you've just introduced me to something new! :-)
=:) Yay! I hope you like them too.
I don't mind if the suggestions aren't about London. I should have said that in the intro.
Books by Lucia St. Clair Robson are fiction, but she includes so much detail - very well-researched, too - that you come away with not just a good story, but knowing a lot about how a group lived or an incident out of history. My favorite was Ride the Wind, which tells the story of Cynthia Parker. She was taken by the Comanche when she was five and lived with them until she was "rescued" as an adult. She was the mother of Quannah Parker, a famous Comanche leader. Her descriptions of the Comanche way of life are awesome.
Sounds interesting! Thanks for the suggestion.
Americans in Paris. really good. Its about Americans...in Paris...during the 20sish and how France inspired our great authors, artists, etc.The Paris Wife. about Hemingway's first wife. Also very good.Manhunt. looking for John Wilkes Booth after he shot Lincoln.
I need to think of some more (I know I've read others) and I'll put them on here. :)
Thanks very much! I'm almost finished my vacation in a city with a great used bookstore (usually live in small villages with hardly any books). I was hoping to get some suggestions for books to pick up for reading this winter. I'll look for these. The Lincoln book sounds really interesting. If you think of more I'd love to hear about them.

My husband loved these books and highly recommended them to me. I should try them. Thanks for the tip!
My brother Sam is dead- Really good book; not the best language but pretty good read for a Revolutionary book.
Spoiler Alert*** Sam dies.
Thanks for the suggestion. I'm still looking for more history comes to life type books.
