A triumph of a novel. Five stars, I loved it. Thrilling, confronting, page-turning and heartbreakingly poignant, The Mother Fault is a remarkable story.

Jane Harper, Bestselling author of The Dry
on The Mother Fault

From the first few pages, I knew I was going to be finishing The Mother Fault the same day I had started. Kate Mildenhall has imagined a world as terrifying and visionary as Margaret Atwood's Gilead, with the pace of the best thrillers - and characters I doubt I'll ever forget. This is novel of rare insight from a rising literary star
