Posted at 1:16PM Friday 04 Apr 2014

The shortlist for the £25,000 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction has been announced, after a process the Judges describe as 'the toughest choice, from the strongest longlist, in the Prize's five year history.'

The shortlisted books include winners of two other major book awards, and settings as diverse as New Zealand in the gold rush, Texas at the turn of the twentieth century, and the Scottish Borders in late medieval times.

The shortlist is:

LIFE AFTER LIFE Kate Atkinson

THE LUMINARIES Eleanor Catton

HARVEST by Jim Crace

FAIR HELEN by Andrew Greig

AN OFFICER AND A SPY by Robert Harris
