Historical Fiction


Realistic stories that are set in the past. There are three types of historical

fiction: 1. The author weaves a fictional story around actual events and people of the

past. 2. The story has little or no reference to recorded historical events or real

persons, but how the characters live and make their living and the conflicts they must resolve are true to the time period. 3. The story tells of the past through another genre, such as fantasy.
