3.7/5 Goodreads

In this ferociously imaginative novel, abortion is illegal in America, in-vitro fertilisation is banned, and the Personhood Amendment grants rights of life, liberty, and property to every embryo.
In a small Oregon fishing town, several very different women navigate these new barriers alongside age-old questions surrounding motherhood, identity, and freedom: Ro is a single high-school teacher trying to have a baby, whilst writing a female polar explorer's biography. Susan is a frustrated mother
of two, trapped in a crumbling marriage. Mattie is a pregnant teenager, one of Ro's best students, who has nowhere to turn. And Gin is the gifted, forest-dwelling homeopath, or "mender," who brings them all together
when she's put on trial in a frenzied modern-day witch hunt.
With the verve of Naomi Alderman's The Power and the prescient brilliance of The Handmaid's Tale, Leni Zumas' incredible second novel Red Clocks is riveting, magnetic and frighteningly plausible.

"Strange and lovely and luminous. I loved Red Clocks with my whole heart" - Kelly Link
"Zumas's language is real sorcery" - Karen Russell
