Maybe this is a loaner from the lib.
Hmm, how accurate is she when it comes to the historical details. And yes I'd like a link to your review.
Give a try for a loaner, if they tell you no tell them to get linked with King County
-- I know I've received ILL's from as far away as New Hampshire and Oklahoma -- and no shipping charges either. I would assume they reciprocate in kind and KCLS does have quite a catalog, including these three books.
A Season of Swans
As far accuracy it seemed well researched to me and I didn't spot any gaffes, but then it's not my period as it is yours. I've read another of her's, The Tiger's Woman
set in old San Francisco and Washington Territory which is more in my neck of the woods and she sure seemed to have a good working knowledge of the areas and the logging and banking industry at the time. It's not a casual writer who would have such an extensive knowledge of the founding fathers of Seattle, let alone the San Juan Islands.
Another interesting series I came across recently you might look at. Yes, they are romance but again she packed a lot history of the US post Civil War leading up to the 1890's. I learned a whole lot more about Grant's presidency then I ever did anywhere else. Out of print but at a penny a book what the heck. Author is Patricial Gallagher.
