Gentle Reads

July 2013

With wit, humor, and insight, these novels explore the everyday joys, frustrations, and sorrows of lives quietly led. Typically they involve the activities of a small town, a church, or a gathering of friends. Sex, violence and other passions are downplayed and never presented graphically. Once dominated by British authors, such as Catherine Cookson and Rosamunde Pilcher, American authors such as Jan Karon and Debbie Macomber, are now also extremely popular.

Gentle reads are found in many genres except horror and suspense thriller. Relationships and character development are important and the pace is usually slower. These stories can contain problems to solve or difficult situations to face, but the response is upbeat and positive. The books have a satisfying, if not happy, ending. 

Many authors write in series. This allows the reader to become involved with the characters as they explore the joys and hardships of everyday life. These books are enjoyed by readers who want a good story with wholesome characters who have positive values.

Some authors listed here, such as Faith Baldwin, Georgette Heyer, Victoria Holt, and Emilie Loring, don’t always quite fit the genre. However, Gentle Reads readers are likely to enjoy these authors.

The library has a Cozy Mysteries list similar to this for gentle reads in the mystery genre. Listed below are popular authors in the gentle reads genre. Arrangement is by author. A brief description of the author’s books is also provided.

DB is a Digital Book (DB books are also available for download on BARD)
