Christina Dalcher's fabulous debut, VOX does not disappoint. A dystopian tale for fans of the Handmaid's tale. Disturbing, provocative and intensely suspenseful. Another Bookhouse Book Club pick. Cosmopolitan says, "The real ife parallels will make you shiver."
Silence can be deafening.
Jean McClellan spends her time in almost complete silence, limited to just one hundred words a day. Any more, and a thousand volts of electricity will course through her veins. A new government is in power, everything has changed. But only if you're a woman.

For herself, her daughter, and for every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice. This is only the beginning…
