Ok, so it’s not high-lit.

I know it’s not literature, but I loved this book: Lily White by Susan Isaacs.  The book employs a great technique, switching chapter by chapter from first to third person, from the present to the past.  It shows the main character’s life from her point of view, and a narrator provides history and background on her life.  Transposes a basic courtroom, crime drama with a social and class study…really great reading was had here.  Recommend it.
