12 spring reading picks from your favorite historical fiction authors

Entertainment Weekly Logo By Seija Rankin of Entertainment Weekly | Slide 2 of 13: "When I settle in with a book, I want to read about women who make me stand up and cheer. So my fave spring read was The Women of Chateau Lafayette by Stephanie Dray, a fantastically ambitious historical novel centering around three timelines, three wars, three steel-strong women, and the castle in France that ties them all together. And for summer, the book I can't wait for is Kaia Alderson's Sisters in Arms, which stars the only all-Black female battalion to be deployed overseas during WWII — a story that needs to be told, and finally is!" — Kate Quinn, author of The Rose Code
