The best historical fiction

Writing in the Wall Street Journal about the best historical fiction, Rebecca Stott names Orlando, my favorite Virginia Woolf novel, and Sir Walter Scott's Waverly. When I was a girl, my favorite Scott was Ivanhoe.

A British historian, Stott is the author of Darwin and the Barnacle, a curious tale of non-fiction, and the The Coral Thief, a novel set in France after Napoleon's fall.
