by Miriam Toews

When eight Mennonite women learn that they were drugged and attacked by a group of men from their own community, they are determined to protect themselves and their daughters from future harm.These women - all illiterate, without any knowledge of the world outside their community and unable even to speak the language of the country they live in - have very little time to make a choice: Should they stay in the only world they've ever known or should they dare to escape?
