Synopsis

'One of those rare novels that leave us different people at the end than we were at the beginning.' GLORIA STEINEM'She is a serious writer who deserves the sort of considered attention which, too often, she does not get...'

The authorities view her as a danger to herself and to others. Her family has given up on her.But Connie has a secret - a way to escape the confines of her cell. She can see the future. . .For fans of THE HANDMAID'S TALE and THE POWER, this is a reissue of a much loved feminist classic.
