The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, by Meg Elison
After the virus wiped out most women and children, the few females who survived have to hide, scraping out their survival on their own, trying to stay clear of the gangs of men who want to control them. To own them. But one of those women knows how to deliver babies, and the world needs her. Now, more than ever.
A unique dystopian drama, The Book of the Unnamed Midwife has a dash of The Handmaid’s Tale and elements of The Postman, but it’s a story all its own. A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2016 and Philip K. Dick Award Winner. Just $1.99 for a limited time.
