We feel with human hearts

The characters in our new historical fiction recent picks include an East End gangland boss with a devastatingly attractive personality; Memnon of Rhodes; sensual dancer Nesrin; desperately poor Marjorie, unable dislodge her writer's block; and Sunderland and Middlesbrough football marksman Brian Clough. Philippa Gregory is back with more on Henry VIII's wives, and Bernard Cornwell with more of Richard Sharpe and the Napoleonic Wars.
Fiction about historical figures is featured on our seniors page.
