What? No Magic?

Four Great Books That are not Fantasy
But are still fantastical

Doomed Queen Anne

This is a great book for any person fascinated with the life of Anne Boleyn but doesn't know much about the story. It has almost all the facts and is a fairly easy read, not to mention a good one!

Redeeming Love

For any mature teen or adult. This is a great book. But I'll warn you-it's a tear jerker. Especially at the end.
It's definitely on my top ten favorite books.

A Lineage of Grace Series (Unveiled, Unashamed, Unshaken, Unspkoen, and Unafraid)

These little novellas are also tear jerkers-just like Redeeming Love. But they are written about the five women mentioned in Jesus' lineage at the beginning of Matthew. They start from Unveiled (Tamar) to Unafraid (Mary herself), and their excellent if you want to learn more about these awesome women of the Bible. Plus they have devotionals in the back. They're really great stuff.

Girl With a Pearl Earring

An excellent book for anyone who's a fan of Johannes Vermeer's work. Plus-it's a very intriguing story. There is also a movie made from the story of this book that is quite good too-Collin Firth and Scarlett Johanson (that's not spelled right, I bet) star in it. The film is also very good too.

I have been meaning to read DOOMED QUEEN ANNE. Have you read the other historical fiction books by that author?

Yes, I was going to add Marie Dancing (by Carolyn meyer-the same author)to the post but I couldn't upload the picture (originally it was 5 non-fantasy books).
Still-Marie Dancing, I think, is one of her greatest books.
