Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson - just amazing, dreamlike, almost eerie fluid, about.... the different ways women drop out, I suppose.
Not overtly feminist, but definitely female centred. Was going to suggest it for the book club (even though i'm not a bc reg under any of my names, but I thought someone else may think it worth considering) then I thought, well it's not overtly feminist, is it? Then i thought, well yes it is, if you consider it a feminist thing to write a Slim Book about the Big Things, meaning of life, loss etc purely from a female perspective with hardly any men even as bit parts.
I've just finished The House at Riverton by Kate Morton - amazingly great book, I loved it. It was that good I didn't skip to the end or abandon it mid through as I usually do. Set in the early 20th century and overtones of women moving from the suppressive Victorian era to the freer twenties and gaining independence. But with a lot of sacrifice along the way. And it's a mystery / love story. Beautifully written.
