Duration 1 hour and 46 minutes
A life for a life. No one need die until someone is born. Then you’ve no choice.
This novella will take the listener to a dystopian future – a world of adults where birthmothers are a privileged class and every child is a celebrity. Death has been conquered, but overcrowding has led to a government-enforced zero population growth. When Janice learns she is pregnant without authorization, she must find a life donor or forfeit her own. For every child born, someone must die. The math is simple, but the politics are complicated, and Janice soon finds herself diving into a deep conspiracy.
For those who loved The Handmaid’s Tale, this is another take on what the future may hold.
