Miranda Reynolds always thought she would rather die than live in Femlandia. But that was before the country sank into economic collapse and her husband walked out, leaving her and her daughter with nothing. Miranda and Emma no longer have much choice, so they set off to Femlandia, the women-only colony Miranda's mother, Win Somers, established. The colonies are secluded, self-sufficient, and thriving. But something is not right. There are no men allowed, but babies are being born - and they're all girls. Miranda discovers how the community is capable of enduring, and it leads her to question how far her mother went to create this perfect, horrifying society.
