7 Award-Winning Novels That Take You on a Journey

Edited by Evelyn Hannon

Women who love to travel generally have at least one book on their nighttable that transports them into another culture. Most women who love to travel are hungry to learn about other religions, other ethnicities, and what it’s like to live in a place other than our own. The following seven ‘travel in your mind books' have each been recommended to me by another women. I now pass these titles along to you. Enjoy!


The Space Between Us

The Space Between Us

Author: Thrity Umrigar

The author vividly captures the social struggles of modern India in a luminous, addictively readable novel of honor, tradition, class, gender, and family. A portrayal of two woman discovering an emotional rapport as they struggle against the confines of a rigid caste system. Click for more!




Author: Michael Ondaatje

A dramatic story set in the decade after World War II told through the lives of a small group of unexpected characters and two teenagers, fourteen-year-old Nathaniel, and his older sister, Rachel, whose lives are indelibly shaped by their unwitting involvement. In 1945, just after World War II, they stay behind in London when their parents move to Singapore, leaving them in the care of a mysterious figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and they grow both more convinced and less concerned as they come to know his eccentric crew of friends: men and women joined by a shared history of unspecified service during the war, all of whom seem, in some way, determined now to protect, and educate (in rather unusual ways) Rachel and Nathaniel.

Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China


Author: Jung Chang

The story of three generations in twentieth-century China that blends the intimacy of memoir and the panoramic sweep of eyewitness history. An engrossing record of Mao's impact on China, an unusual window on the female experience in the modern world, and an inspiring tale of courage and love, Jung Chang describes the extraordinary lives and experiences of her family members.
