I enjoy travelling and have been lucky enough to visit a fair bit of Western Europe as well as some much further flung places including, Cambodia, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Peru and Vietnam among others. I also love history, particularly social history (just as well since it formed the basis of my degrees). Consequently I find I’m often drawn to books that are set in a place I’ve visited, or have a specific period setting. If they combine the two I’m doubly happy.
In addition it gives me an excuse to reveal some of my own bookish favourites based on my own travels and interests. I’ve also asked several authors to share their period settings so Time and Place was born, so sit back and let’s see where we travel to.
