I really enjoy the Ken Follett novels Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. They had romance and sex set against the backdrop of medieval England. They had lots of political and religious intrigue. What makes his novels fiction but Diana’s romance? Is it the time spent on Jamie and Claire? Is there a tipping point with literary critics where one book is determined to be fiction and another…romance? In our local bookstore they just have a separate section for the Outlander books so I have never really thought about this before.
