The novels categorized here as Women's Fiction contain mainstream plot elements generally found outside the typical romance genre (or subgenre) novel.
Women's Fiction novels discover and uncover a woman's journey through a complicated time in their life--or focus on the woman's life experience. The story explores how she navigates that complication and change, often with friends. There may, or may not, be a romantic element in the story.
These stories end with a satisfying ending--but perhaps not a romantic happily-ever-after. In the end, the main character is happy with where she is in life.
