This sounds so like me it's not even funny. Only added to that is also
Bujold's world. She's definitely Science Fiction.

I think the difference in these books is that the Science part of the books
are simply incidental; the characters are the main points, and so we don't
get the "technobabble" that other authors tend to use.
