2008 book 52

Sarah Hall's Daughters of the North
I'll say this for Hall, she is super versatile. None of her books are anything like the others, though her characters are always great (I especially love her book The Electric Michelangelo). Anywya, this book takes place in England in the near future in some sort of dystopian hell where woman are not allowed to reproduce without government permission ad no one can leave their towns. One woman flees to a farm run by a group of women, though their mission has changed slightly over the years. It's pretty dark, but well worth the read. A-/B+.
