In advance: I'm sorry for write so badly in English. I am a Spanish writer.
My wife is writing a book about the life of 4 women. This morning she asked me about which genre her novel belongs to.
At first, I respond very quickly "literary fiction". But now, after talking about the way she has been orienting the scenes, I'm not so sure.
In general, she is writing about 4 women of different ages, living through different dramatics situations. The setting is contemporary, and the women are all between 25 and 45 years. Every character shows part of her life and her way to take the best decisions for her family, friends and for themself.
At the end, it is just a picture of the way that women live on our current times and society.
My question: which is this genre?
