One of the joys of writing – and reading – historical fiction is the sense of tracing the thread of a single life through the broader fabric of the past, and discovering the ways that individual people are affected by historical events. To describe the experiences of one man or woman, especially in a dramatic and volatile period, and follow them over the course of a novel or a continuing series of novels, is to sense the motion of the past and the ways that the great events and towering personalities of history influence and impact human lives.
