Handmaids Tale meet the Help

“The Handmaid’s Tale meets The Help.”

The Times (UK)

A haunting read

“A haunting read . . . Ramos has crafted a real page-turner that combines all the hottest issues of the day…”

The Times (UK)

UK Edition of The Farm

“…Book-club hit and bestseller written all over it …”

“It’s got book-club hit and bestseller written all over it … It’s so now. In fact it’s the very nowness that makes The Farm such a haunting read …Ramos has crafted a real page-turner that combines all the hottest issues of the day: inequality, race and women’s battle to reclaim their bodies from commodification by big business, with the eternal questions of how much we can sacrifice before losing ourselves completely. She is eloquent on the little intimacies of gestating a baby and the upstairs-downstairs dramas between rich white ladies who feel guilty about everything and their nannies who must debase themselves without making their bosses feel sorry for them. The result is an entertaining novel that is also a serious warning.” Melissa Katsoulis, The Times (UK)
