A reading list for FRIENDSHIP FICTION. Women readers appreciate more than relationships. The friends in fiction reveal a deep level of intimacy seldom realized because most characters are unwilling to divulge so much about themselves…. I find the deep intimacy of friends touches me, brings laughter and tears, when I would otherwise just be taking it in…. Why I choose women’s fiction novels with a chorus of friends around the main character.

The Young Balboas. The Postmistress. Husbands May Come and Go But Friends Are Forever. Around Every Corner. A Breath Floats By. First Wives Club. Year of Pleasures. Women characters over forty in contemporary fiction have transcended from backdrop mothers of perfectly lovely daughters to women who face challenges and love head-on. A wide selection of contemporary mature women’s fiction, age thirty-eight to sixty. Women change and grow. Their life journey takes them to an untidy, imperfect ending of the novel quite often. But as women readers know, especially women of a certain age, this imperfect ending is life. It’s the roads we choose on the path before us and how we deal with that ending when we get there that makes all the difference.
