Inspirational fiction

Wholesome reads for those looking for something genteel.

Inspirational fiction overview

Inspirational fiction is uplifting and characterized by explicit or implicit Christian beliefs. It generally focuses on characters who are driven by faith to enact positive change in their lives, and includes little or no sex, violence, or profanity. These books often pose religious questions and answers, show conflicts over morality, and illustrate a conversion or crisis of faith.
