Inspirational Fiction: 5 Books on Relationships

Isn’t it great catching up with news from friends? I was raised in the Midwest, but also lived in several southern states, as well as in Japan, so my friends live far and wide. It has been fun interacting with them on social media and through phone calls, but there is nothing like spending time together. In the past 2 years I’ve reconnected with high school classmates that I hadn’t seen for many years. The memories and laughter shared while together still bring a smile to my face.

I also enjoy reading a variety of Inspirational Fiction books, and one of my favorite categories of that genre centers on relationships. I love a book that captures me on the first page and introduces me to characters that seem like new friends. These are some of my favorites that explore relationships among mature women.
