They say wickedness lies in the sea.
Esta knows the fate that awaits her. On the isle of Eden, there is only one path for a woman: a loveless marriage and motherhood. Anyone who disobeys or fails to conceive will be cast into the sea, the place they fear the most.
But is the real wickedness hiding in the men who rule?
Esta doesn’t dare to dream of another life, until one day, danger forces her beyond the shallows. When the water pulls her under, she discovers a different reality – and an unexpected kindness – hiding there. As she tastes freedom for the first time, the insular world Esta has always known begins to unravel...
The Seawomen is a fiercely written and timely feminist novel, at once gothic, fantastical and truly unforgettable, for fans of Margaret Atwood and Kiran Millwood Hargrave.
