It is the year 2205 and the women of Earth are once again property. Two women, Nazareth and Michaela - one a brilliant linguist, the other a rebel servant - are destined to challenge the power of men. What neither woman realises is that a revolution is already underway: women, hidden away in Barren houses, are slowly creating a language of their own to free them from men's control and make resistance possible for all women. As Michaela and Nazareth's worlds collide, each of their secrets threatens to reveal the presence of a women's native tongue.

Review:

This is my favorite book. It is delightful, disgusting, intriguing, exaggerated, and true. -- gt-teacher from Urbana, Illinois

This is one of the best "sci-fi" books I've ever read.This is what sci-fi is supposed to be. -- jeremymb from New York City

This is truly a brilliant book. It is believable science fiction, full of interesting ideas and truly mindstretching. As I said, a brilliant book! -- A reader from Oosterhout, NB.

‘Elgin understands that until women find the words and syntax for what they need to say, they will never say it, nor will the world hear it ... compelling’ -- Women’s Review of Books

‘Less well known than The Handmaiden’s Tale but just as apocalyptic in [its] vision’ -- New York Times Book Review.
