Historical suspense fan, mainly an ebook reader because they travel easily. Deep, dry red wine or herbal tea with a book make for the best weekends.

Can anyone recommend an historical fiction BY and about Native Americans?

Thank you!

Severnmeadows Such a beautiful photograph. This probably doesn‘t count, but there‘s John Smelcer ‘an Alaskan native of the Ahtna tribe, and the last tribal member who reads and writes in Ahtna.‘ The book of his I‘ve read is Edge of Nowhere, which I think is really good but is a modern tale. But he has published many other books. (edited) 6mo
Cedar_and_Grapefruit @Severnmeadows Thank you! I'll definitely check out his books to read. Much appreciated! 6mo

Making the complexities of hundreds of years of political and socio-economic change completely understandable.

Fantastic writing! Spies, WWI and WWII, searches for loved ones and enemies after the fighting ended, the clashes of lives.

CoffeeNBooks One of my favorite books I read this year! 10mo

Cedar_and_Grapefruit I love female spy novels. Maria York's Blind Man's Bluff Black Butterfly started me on them and this one by Kate Quinn has me hooked. 10mo

The Complete Works of Tacitus | Cornelius Tacitus

Home sick with a sore throat that leaves me nearly mute. Only some in my household find this regrettable ? Tacitus is a quick-moving, passionate read full of great quotes. "No doubt, there was peace after all of this, but it was a peace stained with blood..."

RaimeyGallant Nice review! 10mo

DNF. Absolutely hated the FMC, who was sleuthing out a murderer and telling the victim's family that she was enjoying herself in the process. The murderer was obvious in the first few pages, but in the meantime, I had to read the thousand ways the FMC was so very clever. I hate quitting a book, but she was so irritating.

This author has me wrapped around her finger! My friend told me about Maria York books. This is her 1st. So far the MC, Rebecca travels from England to the Congo w her mentally unstable husband. She finds out that one of his colleagues was killed or murdered and it was hushed up. Now I'm traveling up Mt. Kilimanjaro with her, hoping disease will get her crazy husband and set her free. The book just started though, so I doubt she will be so lucky.

I can't get enough of this series. In surprising moments, a flash of humor amidst grit. Prolonged war scenes wear on me, but I can't skip them because when I do, one of his friends dies and I wonder where they went.
