The Handmaid’s Tale

I suggest reading the book The Handmaid's Tale. The story is about a handmaid named Offred who lives in Gilead. She is allowed to leave the home of the commander and his wife once a day to walk to the food market. She must lie on her back once a month and hope that she gets pregnant by the commander. Offred often remembers the years when she lived with her husband, Luke, and when she played and protected her daughter. Now all of it is gone. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
