The Tea Rose: A Novel by Jennifer Donnelly This is my favourite book of all time. A beautiful, historical fiction set at the time of the industrial revolution. This book has a strong female heroine, a murder mystery and an inspiring story of family and heart. Please read!
Another novel by Lisa Lee that is phenomenal. She's a fantastic writer. Historically sound, culture rich, you fall in love with the main character and find yourself wanting more and more. True page-turner!

Honolulu by Alan Brennert. He is a fantastic writer, he created a strong heroin with a lot of depth and you get to learn quite a bit of history while reading it (not in a boring way) I especially love how his characters faced difficult circumstance but they never wallowed in it, instead fought for better futures and overcame.
