The Testaments
The Testaments


More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid's Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.

Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third voice: a woman who wields power through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secrets.

As Atwood unfolds The Testaments, she opens up the innermost workings of Gilead as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.

"A chilling invitation no Atwood fan can resist . . . The Testaments reminds us of the power of truth in the face of evil."—People

“Margaret Atwood’s powers are on full display . . . Everyone should read The Testaments.”—Los Angeles Times

“A fast, immersive narrative that’s as propulsive as it is melodramatic.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
