I loved The Other Boleyn Girl and then The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory. I read all the books in the series, but these 2 were the best. Love the relationship between the sisters in the former, and the latter has a great character in Catherine Howard... such a teenage girl!
I agree The Help is a good one... some of it is so similar to the film that it's basically word-for-word but the whole book isn't like that, and more goes on so it makes some parts in the movie make more sense.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a good one as well. Funny bits, sad bits, lovely bits... just a good book generally.

Thank you everyone. I have read Paulina Simons books ( red leaves, Tully, the girl in times square) but not the bronze horseman.

Joy Dettman's Woody Creek series. The first book of the series is "Pearl in a Cage". Also, anything by Belinda Alexandra is great, try "Silver Wattle". Both are fabulous Australian authors. We need to support our local talent.

Try Cathy Kelly's books, she has quite a few and they are all great. I too have read all of Jodi Picoult and most of Paulina Simon and I found Cathy Kelly has a similar writing style so I enjoy all her books.
