And flicking back through it, others that are mentioned include...

If you love Christian historical fiction, I'd also recommend Francine Rivers, Gilbert Morris, and Brock and Bodie Thoene (och, the Zion Covenant and the House of Winslow series are phenomenal!). There's also a short little four-book series by Susan Downs and Susan May Warren called The Heirs of Anton which is pretty fabulous, too. Oh, and Judith Pella's "Daughters of Fortune" series. And Liz Curtis Higgs' "Lowlands of Scotland" series!
Och, I'll shut up now.

I'm reading "The Road," by Cormac McCarthy, which has, literally, no names. Luckily, I'm also reading "Brave New World," by Aldous Huxley. It's not really my favourite genre, but it's quite interesting. It's set in the future, so there is a very interesting style of names:
