Publisher Description

In this stunning novel, Sarah Hall imagines a new dystopia set in the not-too-distant future. England is in a state of environmental crisis and economic collapse. There has been a census, and all citizens have been herded into urban centers. Reproduction has become a lottery, with contraceptive coils fitted to every female of childbearing age. A girl who will become known only as "Sister" escapes the confines of her repressive marriage to find an isolated group of women living as "un-officials" in Carhullan, a remote northern farm, where she must find out whether she has it in herself to become a rebel fighter. Provocative and timely, Daughters of the North poses questions about the lengths women will go to resist their oppressors, and under what circumstances might an ordinary person become a terrorist.

Includes an excerpt from Sarah Hall's new book The Beautiful Indifference.

Excellent, but frustrating end

This was an excellent read that is an ominous foreshadowing of a not-too-distant future.

So frustrating that right as the end [Data was Lost] and a critical part of the story was missing? Ugh really???

Daughters of the north

Daughters of the north was an excellent book. The subject a scary one. What person who has read this book cannot help but think that it could actually happen! My only regret about purchasing this book on iBooks was that at the most crucial part "data was lost". Had I purchased this at a bookstore data would have been complete.

Dissappointing end

There were glitches in the online book that caused loss of data from what should have been the climactic event. It just ended back at the beginning.
