Positive Fiction

Wednesday, July 25, 2007
Positive fiction is defined as those books which make one feel good, and laugh a little or a lot.
While positive fiction tackles important topics such as one’s relationship to God or to other people, it does so with a gentle touch and a kindness toward the characters and toward us. And some days a light touch is greatly appreciated.
