Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor

Forever Amber

by Kathleen Winsor


Abandoned pregnant and penniless on the teeming streets of London, 16-year-old Amber St. Clare manages, by using her wits, beauty, and courage, to climb to the highest position a woman could achieve in Restoration England—that of favorite mistress of the Merry Monarch, Charles II.

The Robe by Lloyd C. Douglas

The Robe

by Lloyd C. Douglas


A Roman soldier, Marcellus, wins Christ's robe as a gambling prize. He then sets forth on a quest to find the truth about the Nazarene's robe-a quest that reaches to the very roots and heart of Christianity and is set against the vividly limned background of ancient Rome.

The Black Rose by Thomas B. Costain

The Black Rose

by Thomas B. Costain


Walter of Gurnie, bastard son of an English peer, is forced to flee from Oxford for his part in the university riots of 1273. Inspired by Friar Bacon, he determines to travel to China.

The White Tower by James Ramsey Ullman

The White Tower

by James Ramsey Ullman


From a review: "The White Tower was written towards the end of WW2 & set in that time period. Although the book hinges on a rather fantastic coincidence right from the start, if you go along with it it's a good story & well-written.
