There was a time when History as a subject used to bore me to the core.
Then, God sent a pretty gem – Ms Benaifer Wykes, a lovely History Teacher in my life.
Her heart was as pretty as her face. She used to turn our monotonous lessons into intriguing stories and make us remember tedious historical dates and events like a piece of cake!
If you like reading about Kings and Warriors, personal titbits about historical characters, antique objects, important documents and more, then, Historical Fiction is your subject.
As per Collins English Dictionary, Historical Fiction is a fictional novel which is set in real events in history.
Besides in-depth research, extracting legal facts and gaining complete knowledge of a historical person or an event, is quite essential.
