U.S. based historical fiction (CBA or at least clean. No erotica or slasher fic) that does NOT revolve around romance and has no women in dresses on the cover. Books that provide a powerful look at a moment or span of time in history and gives me insight into the decision making in the past and how it affects us in the future. Plot that leans toward epic. Male protag greatly preferred.
If you are a writer of this type of fiction or know someone who is, please reply. Reader is having trouble connecting with writer on this vast web.
