1. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant: This is a Biblical Fiction book that isn't actually in the Christian genre and is considered to be a bit feminist. This book is a fictionalized account of what it might have been like to a daughter in Jacob's harem.
2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett: I think everyone is pretty familiar with this book. It describes the lives of black housekeepers in 1960s Mississippi.
3. The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley: This one goes between modern and historic Cornwall, England. It's an interesting and romantic time travel story.
4. Glamorous Illusions by Lisa T. Bergren: A poor girl from Montana discovers she is the daughter of a wealthy man and goes on a Grand Tour of Europe with her new siblings, who don't quite accept her. There is also a mystery person following them around Europe attempting to cause them harm.
5. Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer: This is the first Western Romance I read and I absolutely loved it.
6. Love Finds You in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin: 1930s Wisconsin. A young woman hopes to make it in the male-dominated newspaper industry.
7. To Whisper Her Name by Tamera Alexander: Post-Civil War Tennessee. Set on a beautiful plantation. Very romantic story.
8. Better To Wish (Family Tree #1) by Ann M. Martin: From the author of the Babysitter's Club the first in a new series where each book is focused on a young girl from each generation of a family. The series starts off with Abigail a young girl in 1930s Maine. Even though this series is meant for middle grade readers, I found this book to be very mature.
9. Trouble in Store by Carol Cox: This one is also a Western Romance, but with a kick of mystery.
10. The Yonahlossee Riding Camp For Girls by Anton Discalfani: Set in Depression-Era Florida and North Carolina. This one is a sultry coming-of-age tale.
