What are some good books for my elderly old maid aunt?

My aunt is 83. She's in assisted living and has access to nothing - not a library, not a book store. She loves to read. However, she's a bit of a prude. I'm looking for books that are: recent (last year or two, so there is no possibility she has read them); fiction; no more racy than old MASH episodes (clean language, mildly suggestive); not too preachy.
For example - with a little less sex, she'd probably like Time Traveler's Wife. Have any MeFites actually read a book like that?
