Darkness and Hope

Following her 1985 award winning novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood again dives into the world of Gilead in the sequel, The Testaments. In this new novel, Atwood provides us with a deeper look at some of the characters we began to love, as well as those we began to despise. The Testaments provides us with a look at America, pre-Gilead, and the journey that some of the founders had in creating this society of strict laws, harsh punishment, and explicit sexism.
