This disappointed me quite a lot. It sets itself up as a very contemporary tale (with recent events surrounding Brett Kavanaugh in America and the resurgence of interest in things like The Handmaid's Tale). But as another review points out it very quickly turns into a conspiracy theory/Dan Brown knock off. It's not complex enough (even nearly) to handle the subject matter it sets out, it's not nearly in the same league as The Handmaid's Tale, and really she could have gone so much further with this. The ending disappointed me as well. Much too convenient and too concerned with providing a big dramatic, table-turning conclusion. I guess I can see why Richard and Judy would choose it for their book list but it wouldn't win any prizes.
