About Falling as she Sings:
The dystopian novel that turns The Handmaid’s Tale on its head.
Her one requirement: only women are allowed inside. Free of husbands and children, these women--Vestals--lead lives of culture and ease. Outside the walls, men have devolved into feral, violent Brutes roaming the wilderness. The Vestals need access to them for one purpose only—to reproduce themselves.
But Menna, a beautiful Vestal in charge of breeding, makes a disastrous mistake while extracting one captured Brute’s seed. Disturbing interactions with him shatter her preconceptions of Brutes, and her image of herself. Ultimately, she is forced to choose between her sterile existence and a harsh, brutish unknown.
Powerful and profound, Falling as She Sings is at once science fiction adventure, spiritual thriller, and visionary love story. It’s a searching, funny commentary on the eternal, yet ever fresh and compelling forces driving relationships between the sexes.
