This book contains many good ideas on how to organize your specifications. Each one has pros and cons and Kamil Nicieja explains them well enough so that you can make an informed decision on which one you use.

This book is the follow-up of Gojko's Azic's Specification by Example. However, it's more centered on Gherkin by trying to give it more reading vertues. In a second step, it focuses on tests structuration, using arrays and providing guidelines about it. In the end, the author proposes to structure the feature files themslves. We may disagree with some ideas (I do), but they will help to mature your owns.
