I LOVE Wilbur Smith's writings... He has always got a disclaimer if the history doesn't quit meet the timeline of the books...

Unfortunately his ebooks are not available in Australia... and I don't read paper books anymore.. Too hard on hands and shoulders...

Try the Promises to Keep quartet by Shayne Parkinson. The 4 books are available at Smashwords (the first, Sentence of Marriage, is free; the others are $1.99 each). I wrote a review of the series at my An American Editor blog. Shayne is also a MobileRead participant. The story begins in 1880s New Zealand and goes on from there.

Thanks, Richard! Your review is wonderful - one of the very best I've received.

If the 1940s count (I hope they do!), I can recommend December 6 by Martin Cruz Smith, the same author who wrote Gorky Park. December 6 has been overlooked but I think it's a great story that gets inside Imperial Japan on the eve of Pearl Harbor through the eyes of an American expat with one foot in both cultures. The story has shades of Casablanca:

There seems to be dueling historical fiction threads going on -- good to see.

I mentioned this on the other historical fiction thread: I found a great site that lists historical fiction by period:

historicalnovels.info/
