Overview

Named to Fourteen 2019 Most Anticipated Book Lists

One evening, eight Mennonite women climb into a hay loft to conduct a secret meeting. For the past two years, each of them — and more than a hundred other girls in their colony — has been repeatedly violated in the night by demons punishing them for their sins. Now the women have learned they were in fact drugged and attacked by men from their own community, and they’re determined to protect themselves and their daughters from future harm. But should they stay in the only world they’ve ever known, or should they dare to escape? Based on real events, Toews’ masterful novel uses wry, politically engaged humor to relate this tale of women claiming their power to decide.
