The wait is over And so I step up, into the darkness within; or else the light.
When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her - freedom, prison or death. With The Testaments, the wait is over.
Margaret Atwood's sequel picks up the story 15 years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.
'Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! 'The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.' - Margaret Atwood
Joint winner of the Booker Prize 2019
Margaret Atwood has written an astonishing novel with everything against her. This is a sequel to the classic The Handmaid's Tale, which subsequently became a lauded TV series. Instead of resting on her well-earned laurels, she decided to take a risk and continue the storyline of Gilead through the eyes of 3 women. To say any more would be to give away some fantastic twists. Easy to read, a real page turner- Elisa, Book Grocer
