Historical Fiction - A Definition
One definition of Historical Fiction is as follows: “Historical fiction presents a story set in the past, often during a significant time period. In historical fiction, the time period is an important part of the setting and often of the story itself. Historical fiction may include fictional characters, well-known historical figures or a mixture of the two.” In each book, whether or not it is a novel, a children’s book or a short story, there are elements of history inter-woven with that of fiction.
