Five women--including a high school teacher, a pregnant teenager, and a forest-dwelling homeopath--struggle with changes in a near-future America where abortion and assisted fertility have been outlawed and where the homeopath is targeted by a modern-daywitch hunt.
Abortion is illegal in America, in-vitro fertilization is banned, and the Personhood Amendment grants rights of life, liberty, and property to every embryo. In a small Oregon fishing town Ro, a single high-school teacher, is trying to have a baby on her own. Susan is a frustrated mother of two, trapped in a crumbling marriage. Mattie is the adopted daughter of doting parents and one of Ro's best students, who finds herself pregnant with nowhere to turn. And Gin is the gifted, forest-dwelling herbalist, or "mender," who brings all their fates together when she's arrested and put on trial in a frenzied modern-day witch hunt.

Summary / Annotation
Okay submitted by zmclaugh on July 29, 2018, 11:01am A very believable setting with characters who face believable dilemmas. I, however, didn't find myself too emotionally connected to the characters and their plight.
interesting concept submitted by laurenalysse on August 17, 2018, 2:59pm this book was so good in concept, but it could have been much more. I was left feeling a little dissatisfied at the end.
