When She Woke: A Novel

Hillary Jordan


Bellwether Prize winner Hillary Jordan’s provocative new novel, When She Woke, tells the tale of a stigmatized lady suffering to navigate an the USA of a not-too-distant destiny, the place the road among church and country has been eliminated and convicted felons aren't any longer imprisoned and rehabilitated yet chromed―their epidermis colour is genetically altered to compare the category in their crimes―and then published again into the inhabitants to outlive as most sensible they could. Hannah is a crimson; her crime is murder.

In looking a route to defense in an alien and adversarial international, Hannah unknowingly embarks on a direction of self-discovery that forces her to question the values she as soon as held actual and the righteousness of a rustic that politicizes faith.
