It’s not a man’s world anymore.
In contemporary America, where the Woman’s Suffrage Movement won the Civil War, the Matriarchy rules supreme. Now, segregation isn’t by race or religion, but by sex. Men are stock, bought and bartered like slaves at The Redemption. This is the America Adela lives in.
From floggings to executions, Adela has seen the ugly side of the Matriarchy. Taught that all lives are equal, she tries to protect men, from helping them flee the country, to rescuing boys taken by the government.
When it’s clear she’ll lose her best friend and true love, Greer, at The Redemption, Adela will do anything to keep him safe. But The Redemption is sacred in this woman-dominated America, and to defy the Matriarchy is to toy with death.
Adela must decide just how much she’s willing to risk for family, country, and love.
