Jean McClellan spends her days in almost complete silence, limited to a daily quota of just one hundred words. Now that the new government is in power, no woman is able to speak over this limit without punishment by electric shock. But when the President's brother suffers a stroke, Jean is temporarily given back her voice in order to work on the cure. Soon, she discovers that she is part of a much larger plan: to eliminate the voices of women entirely.
As a debut novel nothing but praise. Build up is brilliant. Who can you trust? Who is really what they seem? Then as we hit the climax it becomes a little more sensationalist than I was ready for. That said a great zipwire-ride read. Hope there's more from this author.
