Bestselling author Diana Gabaldon's novel has a peculiar premise. After World War II ends, army nurse Claire reunites with her husband Frank, and they decide to go on holiday to the Scottish Highlands. In an unexplainable series of events, Claire is swept back in time to the year 1743- over 200 years before her own time. Stranded in the middle of warring Scotsmen and British forces, she must use her wits and knowledge of history and medicine to survive. This series has been adapted into an award-winning television show on Starz.
Written from the perspective of Offred, a handmaid living in the oppressive theocracy known as Gilead, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale paints a stunningly bleak picture of what the world might look like in the not-so-distant future if we follow our ideological beliefs to their logical conclusion. Though Gilead is harsh and unforgiving, Offred's strength and ability to love shine bright, showing that even in the darkest of times, women stand tall and cannot be broken. If you love this book, don't forget to check out the sequel, The Testaments.
