The Siege***** by Helen Dunmore
Day For Night****+ by Frederich Reiken
Three excellent novels with fascinating historical details (Niagara Falls, Leningrad, Israel and the Holocaust). I highly recommend them all.
Currently enjoying The White Woman on the Green Bicycle by Monique Roffey, shortlisted for the 2010 Orange Prize. Set in Trinidad.
