Atwood's long-anticipated second novel in the handmaid series follows Offred's daughter, several years in the future of the Gilead saga, as she struggles to come to terms with the totalitarian society. Upon publication, the novel instantly won the Man Booker Prize for 2019 and the demand for first editions is already beginning to rise.
