Attending banquets

Eating and drinking was just as important in the past, if not more so. For the historical novelist, it is vital that you know what food was served and how it was cooked.

Finance also rears its ugly head as, whilst the hero and heroine will care nothing for monetary gain, financial status will have enormous implications on any potential marriage plans.

In romantic fiction, the background is as important as the plot and accuracy provides an ideal balance for the escapist tale you long to tell.
