From the library,

I’ve heard mixed reviews on this one, but the Florence Nightingale/Crimean War topic intrigues me.

UK title A Taste of Sorrow. I’ve heard nothing but good about this one, and I love the Brontes.

Just landed from Amazon Vine,

Mysterious disappearance of lover, exiled by angry parent to a remote lighthouse in Scotland and more. This was has garnered a lot of interest over at Goodreads and I’m anxious to get my hands on it.

Eh, not exactly historical fiction but I am borderline (it runs in the family) and don’t watch my diet as best as I should so I thought this might inspire me. Besides it was better than the deoderant they offered everyone 🙂
