Holiday season is the time to contemplate family stories and relationships, and the genre of family sagas takes family stories to a new level. Family sagas follow the lives of families over several generations, often through changes in the social or financial status, and are usually set against the backdrop of larger historical events.
These works offer rich tapestries of historical fiction, punctuated by personal dramas, conflicts, and even romance. The stories stretch over the decades of the 18th, 19th, 20th or 21st centuries and span the continents.
If you are ready to be engrossed in a story of complicated family dynamics, set within vast expanses of history and geography, pick up one of these titles. We suggest you try them on audio but the print versions are available as well.
