Interest in HF: I’ve always loved fiction and history, so historical fiction is my happy reading zone. I think the books that cemented hist fic as my favourite were Random Passage and Waiting for Time by Bernice Morgan. I have a special interest in: WWII, Ireland, England, Italy, Canada (especially Newfoundland and Labrador), women’s history/herstory and folklore.
Favourite HF book: Can’t pick one. Recently enjoyed The Good People by Hannah Kent.
Preferred HF: I have a special interest in WWII period, especially relating to women’s history, codebreaking work, Bletchley Park. I tend to most enjoy literary fiction rather than comercial or popular fiction, but read a range.

Has anyone read the Miss Fisher/Phyrne Fisher series? - Australian author Kerry Greenwood's series of Phryne Fisher detective novels. Would you recommend them? I’ve watched some of the tv series adaptation episodes via PBS and Netflix.

*Bumping an old thread*
Phryne is back for a new adventure and case to solve! The new and #21 novel Death in Daylesford is available now. It's been awhile since the last novel was released.
The next book The Lady with the Gun Asks the Questions is a collection of Phryne short stories updated with new four ones for this edition. It's now available in Australia and will release to a wider audience next year.
