The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
Have you read the Handmaid’s Tale (Published 1985)? No? I suggest you read that first before this sequel.
Margaret Atwood’s The Testament is a continuation of the bizarre and mind-effing world of Gilead. 15 years after Offred (June) braved the unknown, three female narrators will tell the tale of what happened then, the secrets that lie within, and the unanswered questions about the Christian Taliban ruled country of Gilead that’s been long overdue since 1985.
