I want to read some good, chewy, overly-detailed historical fiction. The sort that spends fifteen pages talking about wool processing before mentioning that a lead character is dying of cholera, and then spends ten pages discussing cholera treatments. The sort of book where most readers will be begging for an editor to step in at some point. Ideally I’d like this to be set from roughly 1600-1880, anywhere in the world.
Any recommendations? Mysteries are fine, romances are fine, military fiction is fine, even AUs are fine as long as there are lengthy digressions into bricklaying and making pastries.
LONG DESCRIPTIONS OF CLOTHING AND TOOLS, PEOPLE. That’s what I am hoping for.
Any recs? Anything? A recs list on Goodreads, perchance?
Help me, Internets, you are my only hope ..
