My review for Femlandia by Christina Dalcher, 5/5 stars.
Wow, I loved this book! Miranda was a great character, who I started off liking, got frustrated with her, then ended up understanding and liking her again.
The story starts in the not-too-distant future where the world’s economy has collapsed and people are left to fend for themselves. It begins as a dystopian novel, but becomes one woman’s fight to survive in this new world, and to put to rest her demons from her past.
The daughter of Win Somers, founder of the Femlandia colony, Miranda has had to battle low self-esteem and estrangement from her mother after a shocking discovery in her teens. Alone with her own daughter, Emma, she must decide what is best – whether they can survive the next few days, or whether they should go to the colony she despises.
The story grips you from the first page, and keeps you hooked as it takes some sinister turns. Well written, with fantastic characters, and a horrifying storyline, this a book that stays with you long after you’ve finished reading it. Highly recommend!
Many thanks to NetGalley and the author for this ARC.
