From the Brontes to present day, fiction for females as a genre has flourished. Women’s fiction now embraces the lighter Chick Lit, and the more mature Hen Lit that have both proved popular. Genres like woman in jeopardy and legendary romance novels often place behind these newer versions of fiction for females in popularity. If eighty per cent of all readers are female, then fiction for females has a ready audience—and that is being proved.
Susan Slater’s book 0 to 60 is not quite Chick Lit, not quite woman in jeopardy but a thoroughly modern treatment of fiction for females addressing typical, timely topics. Shelly Sinclair has the perfect life. Her doctor husband is retiring and the two of them have made plans to enjoy the well-earned perks of a successful career. Only one thing is wrong. The good Dr. Sinclair has asked someone to marry him—a someone 39 years his junior with a four-year-old daughter that just happens to be his. Shelly didn’t see this coming and suddenly, at 60, she has to start over—define her life once again.
But could this be the best time ever? Can she step out of her husband’s shadow and reclaim a part of her that has been buried for thirty-five years? She soon finds that decisions made by one, for one can be heady things. Slater draws upon real life and shows Shelly’s growth and ;attainment of goals that she never thought possible. Fiction for females doesn’t duck the tough subjects but rather treats topics that mirror real life.
