The dystopian masterpiece of Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale, has become a modern classic-and now in this riveting sequel she brings the groundbreaking story to a dramatic conclusion. 

More than 15 years after The Handmaid’s Tale’s events, the Republic of Gilead’s theocratic regime maintains its grip on power, but there are signs that it is beginning to crumble from within. The lives of three radically different people collide at this crucial moment, with potentially explosive outcomes. 

Two of them grew up in the new world as part of the first generation to come of age. A third voice enters the testimony of these two young women: a woman who gains power through the brutal accumulation and clandestine deployment. 

When Atwood unfolds the Testaments, she opens up Gilead’s innermost structures as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is and how far she is going to go for what she believes.
