As for a Civil War book, Glory or the Blue and Gray series. Glory is a story of an African American Regiment that fought for the Union during the Civil War. Blue and Gray series tell the story of families split by political belief.

Yes I liked this one as well.

I have to say my favorite historical fiction work has to be Little Women. I must have read that book a thousand times. I also enjoyed Les Miserables once someone let me read an English translation.
