Book Description:
Knowledge is a Dangerous Commodity

HOME - the last bastion of civilization in a corrupt and fallen world. Outside dwell the reanimated dead, cannibals, and scavengers; remnants of a once great race. Inside, the commune is ruled with an iron fist by Deacon, and administered without mercy by the Elders.

Everyone knows their place in HOME. Everyone is safe in HOME…as long as you follow the rules.

Handmaiden Suzannah Commons is content with training to be a wife and mother, the only occupation open to women in HOME. But her world is turned upside-down when she tastes the forbidden knowledge contained in outlawed books.

Suzannah discovers a new way of life is possible, but that knowledge comes at a high price. It could cost her life. Or the life of the boy she loves.

EXCERPT

As I gathered Silas and Noah’s laundry, I heard a click behind me. I whirled around to see Silas standing there with a satchel in hand the door shut.

“Silas, no! Open the door!” I cried.

“I’m not going to do anything,” Silas said. “Except give you this.” He reached into the satchel and produced a book entitled Jane Eyre. “Well, not give it to you, but Papa can read this next. It’s one of Mother’s favorites.”

“What’s it about?”

“A girl who grows up to be equal with her husband,” he said.

“Like your mother?” I whispered.

He nodded.

“It’s kind of… dangerous then, isn’t it?”

He nodded again. “Yeah. This is one of the books that Deacon doesn’t want everybody knowing about. I borrowed another book.” He got out another book and showed it to me. I opened it to see the handwriting in it. It was hand-made. “It’s a book by a Deacon from years past.”
