|The story of three generations of women in a British family, with fantasy overtones introduced through the existence of "dragons". I have not read it, and so do not know how significant the mathematical references are to the plot. However, not only does the title reflect some mathematical significance, but I know from reading other reviews that the woman in the middle (daughter and mother) was "expected to be a mathematician" but prefers gardening.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
