In FEMLANDIA, Christina Dalcher delivers another “terrifying thriller for our times” (People) set in an alternate near future where a woman and her daughter seek refuge in a women-only commune, only to find that the safe haven they were hoping for is the most dangerous place they could be.
The book’s protagonist, Miranda Reynolds, finds herself in an impossible situation when her husband abandons her and her daughter, Emma, in the wake of a devastating economic collapse. Left with nothing and facing starvation and serious danger in the streets, Miranda turns to the one place she swore she’d never live, Femlandia, the women-only colony Miranda’s estranged mother, Win Somers, established decades ago.
Femlandia is secluded, self-sufficient, and thriving. Miranda knows the lengths her mother went to build it and while Win is no longer in the spotlight, her protégé Jen Jones has taken Femlandia to new heights. But something is not right. There are no men allowed in the colony, but babies are being born—and they’re all girls. That, and Jen has separated Miranda and Emma, taking Emma under her wing and driving a wedge between mother and daughter. When Miranda discovers just how the all-women community is capable of enduring, it leads her to question how far her mother went to create this perfect and horrifying society. Does she remain silent or risk everything to expose the truth?
