Product description

Review

"A ferocious dystopian novel.Hall's dystopian story of resistance and struggle.must be read at the same time as a kind of optimism, striking in its final pages a defiant chord that reminds us power can sometimes be defeated, if not always, and if always at great cost." -- Independent Weekly (Durham, NC)

The heroine of Sarah Hall s novel is known only as Sister. She, like Hall s prose, is raw, brave, and suprising, both to herself and to the reader...The book is remarkable for its lovingly accurate portrayal of women the themes it raises are powerful in the present. --Boston Phoenix, (WORD UP)

Jackie is not infallible, and her methods in pursuit of the greater good are not always kind. But that is what makes Daughters of the North a novel, not an allegory. Hall has created a complex, tight work about hope springing out of resistance. --NPR's "BOOKS WE LIKE" (Jessa Crispin of BookSlut.com reviewing)

"If you liked Children of Men, give this sci-fi page-turner a read. Sister exists in a dystopian future where the UK is under a totalitarian regime."--OK! Magazine (FIVE STARS)
