Long Books by Women Authors

Most lists of long books are dominated by books written by men. Here is a list of long fiction and nonfiction books of 600 pages minimum by female authors. There are many more long books by women, especially in the fantasy and mystery genres. This is not a comprehensive list. These are books I have not read that interest me now.
