“One of the best books of the year … An instant classic for the 21st Century.”–Publishers Weekly

“An inventive tale about a new America that has lost its way – whose values echo fundamentalism – When She Woke is, at its heart, a tense, energetic and lively paced story about self-discovery and reclamation in the wake of enormous shame. It is a story about the price of love.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune

When She Woke serves as a cautionary tale both gripping and grim. It hits too close to home to ignore as ‘just a story.’” —Dallas Morning News

“Jordan’s elegant prose and thrilling plot make for an engrossing read, while her well-structured examination of our Schadenfreude-hungry culture and the precarious position of women’s rights within it make for a thought-provoking one…. Owing much to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter and Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, When She Woke lives up to its influences.” —Shelf Awareness

“[A] provocative, politically charged novel… [Hannah’s] journey to reclaim herself is equally chilling and riveting.”—Family Circle

“[A] chilling futuristic novel.”—O: The Oprah Magazine

“Jordan blends hot-button issues such as separation of church and state, abortion, and criminal justice with an utterly engrossing story, driven by a heroine as layered and magnetic as Hester Prynne herself, and reminiscent, too, of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (1985). Absolutely a must-read.”—Booklist, starred review

“Hillary Jordan channels Nathaniel Hawthorne by way of Margaret Atwood in this fast-paced, dystopian thriller.  Unputdownable.”—Valerie Martin, author of The Confessions of Edward Day
