A Whistling Woman by A. S. Byatt

English author A. S. Byatt concludes her Frederica Potter series with A Whistling Woman. Frederica maneuvers through the late 1960s with a job at the fledgling BBC, an anti-university alternative community and its charismatic leader, and a Body-Mind Conference. These are just the framework of a story that allows the novelist to explore myriad issues from science to religion to feminism and sexuality plus much more. You probably can't completely understand and enjoy this book without reading the first three in the series. If you haven't, perhaps this is a nudge to explore one of the most important women writers of the last fifty years. If you have, A Whistling Woman is probably a must-read for you.
