Summary
Cal and Frida have left a chaotic and broken down Los Angeles and are living on their own in the wilderness when they discover a settlement close by. Frida's pregnant and the couple decide to join the settlement, though they are not fully welcomed and their presence eventually must be voted on. Gradually, they realize that something is not quite right there: decisions are made from the top down, roles are strictly defined, and...where are the children?
Critique
Lepucki, in her debut novel, raises important questions about social class and the choice of security vs. freedome, but the ending seems rushed and jars with the character development.
