Blurb – New London: 2067
Britain struggles to rebuild after the crushing devastation of the Great Flood.
Those in power have formed a new regime in the wake of the disaster.
Whether it is a hard-won utopia or an oppressive nightmare depends
entirely on gender. Unmarried women have no legal rights or
protection, and their access to education and employment is limited to
ensure their servitude. Yet a fire burns within them to prove they are
far from the weaker sex, and their rebellion seeks to tear down the
Cerys and Gloria have very different dreams, but a common enemy.
Joining an underground alliance, they discover a group of scientists
in possession of a weapon powerful enough to change society forever.
Their radical solution is not without great risk. Failure means death
or imprisonment. Success could land them in a seat of authority, over
a society that loathes them, without the requisite skills to thrive.
