'The Lake District's answer to The Handmaid's Tale.' Guardian England is in a state of environmental and economic crisis. Under the repressive regime of The Authority, citizens have been herded into urban centres, and all women of child-bearing age fitted with contraceptive devices. A woman known as 'Sister' leaves her oppressive marriage to join an isolated group of women in a remote northern farm at Carhullan, where she intends to become a rebel fighter. But can she follow their notion of freedom and what it means to fight for it? 'At the vanguard of the new wave of futuristic dystopian literature . . . an accomplished, provocative novel.' Literary Review 'Hall's fierce and shocking writing captures the cruel beauty of Cumbria.' Telegraph 'A dystopian vision of a disturbingly near future in which the floods have risen and the oil has run out . . . entirely modern and brutally fresh.' Independent
