Lesbian historical fiction (Lesbian Book Bingo #2)

If you haven’t heard of the Lesbian Book Bingo before now, it’s not too late to join! In short, it’s a year-long reading challenge where you’re trying to read one book for each square on the bingo card—and you can win great books while doing it. If you need to brush up on how Lesbian Book Bingo is played, check out the rules.

 

I’ll post suggestions for a new square on the first and third Thursday of each month. Today, I’ll be covering the “historical fiction” square.

Part of the fun and the challenge of the Lesbian Book Bingo is that you are encouraged to read books that you might not have tried otherwise.

I know that some people shy away from genres such as historical fiction, but give it a try—or if you already love historical fiction, enjoy your read for this bingo square!

125 thoughts on “Lesbian historical fiction (Lesbian Book Bingo #2)”

  1. Wooo my Favourite category! I want to read Charity by Paulette Caullan or Galveston 1900: Swept Away by Linda Crist. Or both. Probably both.

    • To add to the list:
      – The Gothic Romances by Patty G Henderson, Including Shadows of the Heart Those book are very short, simple, and sweet. The historical detail is nicely done in book that short, you’re perfectly situated in the time period without boring you with details. Great quick reads.
      – Crossing the Wide Forever by Missouri Vaun

  2. For this category I read the caretakers daughter by Gabrielle goldsby! It’s a wonderful book, I’ve read it a few times. :)

  3. So many interesting titles on this list. I’ve already read a few of them. I have been meaning to read Basic Training of the Heart for a while now, so I will probably read that one.

  4. I have only heard of 2 books. Shaken to the Core and Fingersmith. Only read Shaken to the Core, which was fantastic. stuck for choice and would like to read more than one on the list. Thanks

  5. Couldn’t wait anymore and already read Backwards To Oregon. I finished it this morning on my way to work just the moment my train arrived at the station. :-)

  6. Historical fiction is where I’m really going to pile on the recommendations! But what can I do for a historical in my mini-story series that I’m posting to promote the bingo challenge? After all, the entire series has a historical setting! Why, I write something that’s historical with respect to my historical characters, of course.
    http://alpennia.com/blog/lesbian-book-bingo-2018-all-stage-world
    Some recent reads I’ve loved that fit the historical category include:
    Spring Flowering by Farah Mendlesohn (a Regency-era story that’s more of a slice-of-life-with-romance than a romance novel)
    Daring and Decorum by Lawrence Hogue (a really well-written highwaywoman romance)
    Passing Strange by Ellen Klages (a lightly fantastic romance set in 1940s San Francisco)
    The Sealed Letter by Emma Donoghue (fictionalized biography and legal drama set in 19th century England)
    The Sisterhood by Penelope Friday (Regency romance with social activism)
    If a collection all on the same theme counts as a novel-equivalent, there’s also the anthology of lesbian historical fiction Through The Hourglass, edited by Sacchi Green and Patty G. Henderson

    And some older historicals that I really loved:
    Goddess by Kelly Gardiner (based on the life of 17th c French bisexual opera singer and swordswoman Julie d’Aubigny)
    Behind the Mask by Kim Larrabee (another highwaywoman romance set in the Regency in England)
    Rebeccah and the Highwayman by Barbara Davies (yet another fun highwaywoman romance, this time set in the early 18th century)
    Moll Cutpurse: Her True History by Ellen Galford (inspired by a real-life genderqueer woman of early 17th c England)
    Pembroke Park by Michelle Martin (possibly the first lesbian Regency romance to be published)
    A Mistress Moderately Fair by Katherine Sturtevant (Restoration-era playwright falls in love with her leading lady)

    I haven’t decided yet what I’m going to use for my historical bingo square. Since so much of what I read in lesbian fiction is historical, I’ll wait and see which book I don’t need for some other square.

    • Heather this is absolutely amazing! And thank you for your weekly podcasts enlightening us on lesbian historical fiction. They are very engaging!

  7. That’s a great list. I’m thinking about reading either “Backwards to Oregon” by Jae or “Silver Wings” by HP Munro. I can also recommend “Lilies of the Bowery” by Lily R Mason, a book I read just a month ago and it was lovely.

  8. A DEFINITE MUST on this list:
    Jae’s Oregon Series (Backwards to Oregon, The Hidden Truth)
    *for readers who haven’t had the luxury to enjoy these 2 classics of Jae’s, I implore you to read them. And don’t just stop there. Read ALL the shorts that accompany the Oregon Series to delve deeper into this unforgettable family & their journey! Satisfaction guaranteed!

    Also worth reading are Rad’s Prairie Hearts series (Innocent Hearts, Promising Hearts); Sarah Waters’ “The Paying Guest.”

    • I really enjoyed In the Company of Women and definitely encourage you to read her additional text regarding how she came up with the story.

  9. Past winter hollidays I’ve read Tiopa Ki Lakota by D. Jordan Redhawk. I can really recommend this wonderful and very authentic historical novel, especially for those of us, who are interested in history and culture of the north american natives, here the Lakota.
    For this great lesbian book bingo I will finally read Jae’s Shaken to the core. But I think, I will read it this time in my native language german. It’s titled “Aus dem Gleichgewicht”, which will be released soon.

  10. I have a few of these on my to-read stack, but I’ll go with the vintage copy of Moll Cutpurse which came in the mail today.
    Hat tip to Heather Rose Jones, who mentioned the book in her podcast.

  11. Kicker’s Journey and Water’s Edge are tops on my list for the historical fiction square :D Ever since I read Lyddie by Katherine Paterson in grade school, I’ve been fascinated by stories of women working in textile mills.

  12. Thanks so much for the suggestions! It’s fun to discover new books. I’m going to read Water’s Edge by Genevieve Fortin. Happy reading!

  13. I missed the start of this bingo, but I really like the idea of it! It will make me try genres I normally wouldn’t pick out. So I already made up for lost time in the first box.

    For this square I will start with Fingersmih – Sarah Waters and Silver Wings – H.P. Munro.
    And Shaken to the Core – Jae and Awake unto me – Kathleen Knowles are on the list for this square as we’ll see how far I will come before the next update. it’s looks like quite a list, but I don’t sleep that much, so I read a lot ;)

    And thanks Jea for all the suggestions! It’s a great way to make my to-read list even longer, together with all the suggestions of the other readers.

  14. Been wanting to read Backwards to Oregon for a while so I’m going to use that for the square. Hoping to win Basic Training of the Heart 😊

  15. I have a lot of ideas right now for historical fiction. Might read Fingersmith on this list, as I think it’s at the library, or maybe Tipping the Velvet or The Paying Guest by the same author. I might also read The Raven’s Heart by Jesse Blackadder (MC is apparently bisexual but I don’t think that’s central to the plot so I’m so-so on it.) Or another possibility is Tangled Roots by Marianne K. Martin, which I think is sort of a Reconstruction-era story of an interracial relationship.
    Technically I’ve already read a historical fiction, though, because I read For Whom the Roses Grow by Rebekah Blackmore last week.

  16. I haven’t read any book of the list. But I did read ‘Backwards to Oregon’ and that was beautiful. Golddigger by Hilary McCollum will be my choice for the historical square. It’s already waiting for me on my Kobo.

  17. For this square I am re-reading my favorite Alpennia book, ‘The Mystic Marriage’. The whole series is historical with a touch of fantasy, and it’s superb.

    I just wanted to point out that every Sarah Waters novel works here and it’s amazing (except for ‘The Little Stranger’, a super accomplished novel, but no queer characters). ‘Fingersmith’ was mentioned in the post, but she also has ‘Tipping the Velvet’ and ‘Affinity’ set in the Victorian Era, and ‘The Night Watch’ and ‘The Paying Guests’ set in the early XXth century.

    And leaving here one I read very recently and loved: ‘Afterimage’, by Helen Humphreys. It’s beautifully written. Consider romance stays a second thought to everything else, though, in case that is a deciding factor for you.

  18. The idea was to read the sequel to “Backwards to Oregon” (why can’t I remember the name?!), but now that you’ve mentioned “Fingersmith”, I want to drop everything and reread that instead! It’s one of my all-time favourite books.

    • Hidden Truths. Both stories are wonderful and as another reader mentioned above definitely try to get the short stories that continue the characters. You won’t be disappointed!

  19. This is one of my favorite categories and I’ve read all but 4 on the list. A few other favorites: Nann Dunn – The War Between the Hearts and Clash of the Minds, Catherine Friend – The Spanish Pearl and The Crown of Valencia, C F Frizzell – Stick McLaughlin Prohibition Years, Nancy Little – The Grass Widow, L J Maas – Tumbleweed Fever and Prairie Fire, Yolanda Wallace – Divided Nation United Hearts, Caren J Werlinger – Cast Me Gently. I reread Shaken to the Core earlier this month but for the bingo card I think I have to revisit Luke and Nora in Backwards to Oregon since I kind of fell in love with Luke 🤓. Then of course I’ll have to reread Hidden Truths!

    • I totally crush on Luke EVERY time I read this story and even when I don’t. For me, Luke is the perfectly written character. (dreamy sigh!)

  20. The concept of Lesbian Bingo is such a great idea as it is pushing me into places I seldom wander into and this category is one of them. Now what to pick ?

  21. So many great options on that list Jae, but Backwards to Oregon is probably going to get re-read (for the umpteenth time) for this square of Bingo. Gotta get my Hamilton family fix in this year. :)

    • Good choice! Don’t forget to read the additional text that describes how she came up with the story- I thought that was pretty interesting.

  22. I will be rereading Backwards to Oregon. I have been wanting to do this for years and never take the time, because of all the new books available. This is my most favorite lesbian book ever!! The sequel and related stories are great too! I highly recommend them all.

  23. some time ago I read a real good written Fan fiction which might fit well into this category. Its “Second Son” by AK Naten.
    If Fan Fiction also is possible in this game, you should add “Second Son” to this list too.

  24. Fingersmith is fantastic, though I found the repetition of the blander parts of the story (between the two points of view) a bit annoying. This year, I read Niamh Murphy’s Mask of the Highwaywoman for the historical fiction category. I’m not a huge fan of the genre, but I can think of at least 3 or 4 really good books that fit into it. Other than Fingersmith, I haven’t read any of the books on this particular list.

  25. I love lesbian bingo and I love your blogs relating to different categories! Thanks so much for the terrific suggestions. I have several lined up on my kindle just waiting for me.

  26. I’ve had Water’s Edge by Genevieve Fortin on my Kindle for a long time, so I’m definitely reading that one for this square!

    And another good historical choice is “Divided Nation, United Hearts” by Yolanda Wallace (Civil War romance).

  27. I haven’t read any of Sandra Moran’s books and keep hearing how great they are, so I think I’ll read Letters Never Sent for this one.

  28. For this square, I’ll read Sarah Waters’ “The Paying Guest” as I recently purchased a hardcover copy of it, and I liked the movies based on two of her books, “Fingersmith” and “Tipping The Velvet.”

  29. Justine Saracen’s new book Berlin Hungers comes out in a few months so I might wait on this square. Although this would be a good time to finally read Shaken to the Core:)

  30. I read Pirates Booty (The Plundered Chronicles) by Alex Westmoreland. There are four in the series so far. I read all of them last week and would recommend any and all but you should definitely start with the first one if you haven’t read any yet. As a plus they are all Kindle Unlimited… so free if you have that membership!

  31. I have just re-read Diane Sisterwoman’s Westward We Women. which I can highly recommend to all, as we as the sequel Heal My Wounded Heart. Historical is my ‘cannot say no’ area; thus I am reading Tremble & Burn by Anna Furtado now. With so many wonderful books to choose from – have fun ladies.

  32. I am currently reading Backwards to Oregon and I’ve been waiting to read this for a while. There are so many good lesbian books out there.Lesbian Book Bingo is such a great idea and I am so excited to play.

  33. I’m reading Backwards to Oregon now for the fake relationship square and it is great! I haven’t read Moll Cutpurse or Pembroke Park in ages, so it might be time to revisit them.

  34. I love this category! I am reading In the Company of Women, but I plan on working my way through all of these in this category in time. This is a great way to find awesome books…love this game!

  35. My favorite category! I may finally read Fingersmith, or I might re-read Bittersweet. I have some recommendations.

    *Secret City* by Julia Watts involves a dangerous affair in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, a city created by the government for secretive work (Atomic City) during World War II.

    *Bittersweet* by Nevada Barr is about two women who flee to northern Nevada in the 1870s.

    *Map of Ireland* by Stephanie Grant takes place during desegregation in Boston.

    *Desert of the Heart* by Jane Rule. This has my favorite directorial change from a book to a movie. In the book, Ann (Cay) tells Evelyn (Vivian) that her philosophy is “If you don’t play, you can’t LOSE.” In the movie, director Donna Deitch has a one-line cameo in which she says, “If you don’t play, you can’t WIN.”

    *A Thin Bright Line* by Lucy Jane Bledsoe is a fictional imagining of the author’s real-life aunt who was a science writer for the government while they were extracting polar ice cores for the first time during the Cold War.

    If you want some real lesbian history, these are some of my favorites:

    *Gay L.A.*, *Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers*, and *Surpassing the Love of Men*, all by Lillian Faderman.

    *Fire in the Rain…Singer in the Storm* by Holly Near offers a glimpse into the 1970s women’s (lesbian) music scene.

    *The Girls: Sappho Goes to Hollywood* by Diana McLellan. Don’t let the title fool you. This gets into politics and so much more with thorough research into FBI files, private letters, etc.

    Can we read non-fiction for the free space?

    • I’ve had a hard time finding Navy stories as well. I was looking through my shelves and found “Scuttlebutt” by Jana Williams though.

  36. I read “Divided Nations, United Hearts” by Yolanda Wallace for this square, but I will definitely read some of the suggested ones as well.

  37. I’m leaning towards reading Fingersmith I think. I’ve been wanting to for awhile, not to mention I found a copy awhile back somewhere so it’s just sitting in my book case. :)

  38. I’m so torn! So many great choices and many of these are already in my library. I will probably wind up reading several in this category this year.
    Also- who won the book from the last post? I never saw an announcement.

    • A reader named Mallory won the audiobook. I will always draw the winner one week after posting each giveaway, and I’ll post the winner on Facebook and Twitter, but I didn’t announce it on my blog to avoid spamming my blog subscribers with too many blog posts. I will always email the winner so that no one misses her prize. You can also check out my Facebook and Twitter the Thursday after each post.

  39. Just finished reading & really enjoyed Shaken to the Core for this category. I can also recommend Tiopa Ki Lakota as one of the best historical fiction books I’ve ever read… I read it 1st on line, then again when it was published. A year or so ago, I also read the revised version and enjoyed it all over again

  40. Historical fiction is my favorite genre. I’m stuck between Tiopa Ki Lakota by D. Jordan Redhawk and Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. I’ll just have to read both.

  41. I am going to read Galveston 1900: Swept Away and
    letters Never Sent because both sounds like they are going to be amazing books.

  42. Thanks for the great recommendations. I am reading In the Company of Women. I was stationed in Texas and this will be fun.

  43. I’m going to read “ chaken to the core “ again. Although I hessitated to start again in “ the price of salt” since I saw the film recently.

  44. Basic Training of the Heart sounds good! During WWII the women’s corp was so gay that they couldn’t discharge everyone who was gay without losing all of their top commanders. It’ll be interesting to see how it’s portrayed in this book

  45. I would agree with all those comments stating this isn’t my normal genre or my usual read. However, listening to Heather Rose Jones’ podcasts has really turned my thoughts around. She has such a wealth of knowledge and her love and passion for this genre is so contagious that she could make reading a stone tablet interesting! She offered up a phenomenal list above with some very talented authors. For me though, I think I will be reading Lee Lynch’s “The Raid.” Thanks Jae for putting so much time and effort into our LesFic family and providing this amazing game with so many amazing story suggestions.

  46. I read A Pirates Booty by Alex Westmore. Hilarious name. Suprisingly good book. It’s the first in a series and I’m trying to figure out which square I can fit the second book in!

  47. Great list. I’m reading Fire in the Hole by Alex Westmore for this category. While it is a pirate adventure story, this book along with the previous ones in the series gives an interesting look at the politics of the Elizabeth vs Mary Queen of Scots era.

  48. I originally had In the Company of Women in the Women in Uniform category, but moved it to Historical Fiction because I thought it would be a more difficult category for me to fill. I am moving it back & will re-read one of my favorites, Tiopa Ki Lakota for the Historical Fiction square. I am on a tight budget this year & will be re-reading most of my library, but look forward to reviewing all these suggestions next year when I will have a line item in my budget just for books!

  49. I just finished my Historical Fiction Bingo Book. My book was way outside of my normal reading genre. I am so glad I read Letters Never Sent and what a legacy left to us by Sandra Moran.

  50. This is one of the categories that is going to limit how many cards I can fill out. (The other one is Second Chance Romance.) However, I do have some planned reads. Daughter of Mystery by Heather Rose Jones, which I think could either be historical or fantasy, right? Alaskan Bride by D Jordan Redhawk, and of course, Backwards to Oregon.

  51. D Jordan Redhawk is on of my favorite authors. I have actual books of hers. It’s about time to reread some again I think.

  52. I love these list so much. Sp many new books to read! For this category I will be reading Kicker’s Journey by Lois Cloarec Hart

  53. Just finished my historical fiction read of Shaken to the Core by Jae. I was fascinated by the events in the book so much that I Iooked up actual events happening during the 1906 earthquake. Jae did such good research. Thank you.

  54. Historical Romance is one of my favorites. ‘Letters Never Sent’ by Sandra Moran is a book I have recommended to many. I also bought fifteen copies to give as Christmas books in 2014. In the Summer of 2014, I was lucky to have met Sandra, and her smile and cheerful personality were contagious. She was wonderful. RIP beautiful Sandra. Her business card is tucked in the edge of my mirror for inspiration.
    Marianne K. Martin is another author I love. While ‘Under the Witness Tree’ is not on this list, it’s one of Marianne’s great works.
    There are many good authors on the Lesbian Bingo Card, but I must confess to being a huge Jae fan and ‘Shaken to the Core’ is brilliant. It’s now my favorite of Jae’s work. Oh, and thank you Jae for doing the Lesbian Bingo.
