This sees like an interesting group but like others in the Christianity and Religion area it has stalled. I wonder why that it so often the case.
Anyway, hello and let us see if we can revive this group.

What is the best,and I mean all time best, Christian Historical Fiction you have read, ever?

Hi LorLe
Just now read your post and would have to say that my favorite historical fiction is Susan Meissner's "Lady in Waiting". It's actually the story of a contemporary woman named Jane and of the 16th century Tudor, Lady Jane Gray. Lovely dovetailing between the two stories. Interesting historical fiction and very well done contemporary fiction about a woman dealing with the sudden departure of her husband. Both Janes face circumstances beyond their control yet find ways to exercise their ability to make their own choices.

I can suggest my debut novel, Burning Hearts, set in 1946 on the Great South Bay of Long Island, NY.

Can a sheltered young seamstress, disillusioned by the horrors of WWII, escape an arsonist/murderer who has killed her employer and mentor, while trying to decide if she can trust the dashing war hero who’s ridden into town on his Harley—who some say is the murderer?

Erica Brogna’s parents doted on her and taught her to think for herself. Many boys she grew up with have fallen in the war, shaking her childhood faith. In rides a handsome stranger, at the hour of her most desperate need. A woman who is her best friend and mentor is trapped in a burning house. After making an unsuccessful rescue attempt, Erica stands by as this man rushes into the inferno and carries her friend’s lifeless body out.

Lorne Kincade can’t out run his past on his Harley Davidson WLA, the civilian model of the motorcycle he rode in the war. He’s tried. He’s been a vagabond biker in the year since the war ended. His Uncle Ivar bequeathed him a ramshackle cottage in Sanctuary Point, on the Great South Bay of Long Island, NY and now he’d like to hope for a future again, repair the miniscule place, and settle down. The only problem is, a young woman with hair the color of mink is starting to get under his skin and that’s the last thing he needs.
