When She Woke by Hillary Jordan

“Hannah Payne’s life has been devoted to church and family. So how has she become a convicted murderer? Set in a dystopian extremist right-wing future, this is the chilling new novel from the author of Mudbound, for fans of The handmaid’s Tale and The Scarlet Letter.”

Imprisoned, Hannah’s skin colour is genetically altered to red, the colour of a murderer – of her unborn child. And now she protects the identities of the father and of the abortionist – in an “alien America”.

When She Woke by Hillary Jordan is published in May by HarperCollins £12.99.
