books about the world

I'm looking for recommendations of books that are well-written and engaging and where all or most of the main characters are women, but casually, with no special big deal made about it. Examples of the sort of thing I'm looking for: Slow River and The Blue Place, both by Nicola Griffith, or, differently but in a similar category, Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver.
