Are you in a historical romance slup? With so many great contemporary romances dominating the market, it can be hard to get in the mood for a good Regency or Victorian-set romance. With her new novel, The Songbird's Seduction, Connie Brockway tackles the 1900s and shows her love for the Edwardian period. Today, Connie shares a list of her favorite Edwardian-set movies that are sure to make you fan of those tumultuous years.
Long before Downton Abbey hit American shores, I saw the Merchant-Ivory film, A Room with a View, and fell in love with the Edwardian period. It’s no surprise that my latest novel, The Songbird’s Seduction, takes place in 1908.
The Edwardian era was the last stand of an aristocratic lifestyle, a world of contrast and potential, where the word “girl” denoted maturity while the term “young lady” inferred naivety, where chauffeured motor cars took merry-makers to the theater and shop girls took typing lessons.
