History and Art

Ann of bookwitch is struggling with a very difficult problem, a variation of one I’ve grappled with many times over the years — the historical fiction conundrum.  In a book about a time in history Ann knows well the author has changed things so that  “… what the adults did in the real event, has now been done exclusively by the children in the book.”    Is that okay?  Or is it not?  I’m going to be following the comments on this post closely.
