Sometimes this just means a book without foul language, excessive violence, graphic sex scenes ... . Many cosy mysteries, for example, could bear such label.
I tend to avoid books with too strong religious overtones. Yet, there *are* books that are SO well written that they are well worth reading. Such as "Quo Vadis: A Narrative of the Time of Nero", commonly known as "Quo Vadis", a historical novel written by Henryk Sienkiewicz in Polish.(*)
DISCLAIMER: I have not read English translation, so I do not know how well it is translated, but the original and also the translation I have read is a very remarkable historical book.
