Dystopian | Women's Fiction

The acclaimed author of Before She Sleeps returns to a feminist dystopia in this novel of women rising up to break the bonds of polygamy and repression.
In a country bent on controlling women’s bodily autonomy and reproductive freedom, a resistance has formed. An armed group of women known as the Hamiyat have made a name for themselves protecting those too weak to fight back. And now they are going on the offensive . . .
Three women among its ranks must make the hardest choices of their lives. Alia Musa, wife of three husbands, joins the Hamiyat to stand up for the daughters she loves. Young soldier Katy Azadeh is kidnapped and finds her beliefs sorely tested by the country of Eastern Semitia and its seductive promises, while commander Fatima Kara must weigh the balance of her soldiers’ lives against a once-in-a-lifetime gambit for freedom.
Called “a haunting, dystopian thriller . . . [that] fans of The Handmaid’s Tale won’t want to miss,” Before She Sleeps was just the beginning, awakening readers to an all-too-believable future (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Now The Monsoon War will take you to the front lines of a desperate battle against a government standing on the necks of the women they thought were broken.
