Product description

Review

‘Hillary Jordan channels Nathaniel Hawthorne by way of Margaret Atwood in this fast-paced, dystopian thriller. Unputdownable’
Valerie Martin, author of The Confessions of Edward Day

‘Not only one of the best books of the year, but it's everything the dystopian genre was made for . . . An instant classic for the 21st century’
Publisher’s Weekly

‘Holds its own alongside the dark intentions of Margaret Atwood and Ray Bradbury’ NEW YORK TIMES

‘A stunning futuristic thriller … the setup in the first part of the book is excellent, very Handmaid’s Tale, the second half is a straight chase and escape tale. The whole thing is stunning.’
The Bookseller

PRAISE FOR HILLARY JORDAN:
‘Hillary Jordan writes with the force of a Delta storm’
Barbara Kingsolver

‘Jordan's tautly structured debut . . . confronts disturbing truths about America's past with a directness and a freshness of approach that recalls Alice Walker's The Color Purple.’
The Times

‘The winner of Barbara Kingsolver's Bellwether Prize for a novel 'promoting social responsibility,' Hillary Jordan is happily a writer who puts her duty to entertain first’
The Independent
