The Handmaid’s Tale is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a mono-theocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population.
The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment’s calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions. The Handmaid’s Tale is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best.

Riding a bus bound for nowhere, nineteen-year-old debutante Dana Van Werner clung to a slender hope, an unbreakable will, and a few hundred dollars. Her nightmares clung to childhood memories of verbal and emotional abuse, terror, and physical violence at the hands of her father.
While she had escaped her gilded prison, lurking in the darkness was the “real world” of buses, sexual predators, jail cells, exploitation, and fleabag motels—survival skills seldom taught in finishing school.
She was also being followed by her father’s investigators: mercenaries competing for the bounty the powerful, deranged lawyer was offering for her return.
One thug in particular was obsessed with mixing pleasure with business.
Dana would endure a physical attack, robbery, arrest and incarceration, and an evening as a stripper in a seedy bar before finding refuge and love with a kindhearted deputy sheriff.
But abuser and survivor would eventually face each other again in a violent and climactic showdown, a confrontation that would tear open a lifetime of hidden scars.
This is an adult novel dealing bluntly with a contemporary issue. However, it more importantly showcases a woman’s determination, courage, and strength in the face of devastating pain.
Come meet this remarkable woman and share her story.
