Writing Historical Fiction

Christina Baker Kline--#1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train and the newly released The Exiles--joins Eve and Julie to discuss the research strategies, language choices, and overarching philosophies that shape the writing of historical fiction.

The Exiles

Monumental...This episode in history gets a top-notch treatment by Kline, one of our foremost historical novelists. This fascinating 19th-century take on Orange Is the New Black is subtle, intelligent, and thrillingly melodramatic. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The Orphan Train

“Absorbing...a heartfelt page-turner about two women finding a sense of home...Kline lets us live the characters’ experiences vividly through their skin...The growth from instinct to conscious understanding to partnership between the two is the foundation for a moving tale.” -- Publishers Weekly
