An electrifying novel.

After the US is overtaken by the “Pure Movement”, a fundamentalist Christian political movement, all the women and girls in America have been fitted with a metal bracelet that delivers an electric shock if they go over their limit of 100 spoken words a day. Pens and paper are forbidden; books locked up; sign language punishable by … what? No one knows. The offenders simply disappear, hauled off by enforcers in the vastly expanded Bible belt.

Jean, a mother of four, has been forced to give up her career as a researcher studying aphasia, the loss of language. She feels her own failure. She reclaims her voice!

A provocative debut….
