Have just finished the good-in-parts-but-overall-grindingly-disappointing Dominion by C J Sansom and it's left me wanting something better. Have had a bash at Fatherland by Robert Harris, but it's not really doing it for me either.
Has anyone read anything good which would fit my apparently narrow field of interest?
I am currently reading Black Roses by Jane Thynne. The story of a young English actress in Berlin in 1933 who socialises with the Nazi wives. Seems very well researched and is readable rather than high brow.
Also second the Cazalet Chronicles by Elizabeth Jane Howard and highly recommend Saplings by Noel Streatfeild and Good Evening Mrs Craven by Mollie Panter -Downes.
