The Book of Flora by Meg Elison. Published by 47North

This is the third title in the Road to Nowhere series and you need to read them all in order to get a handle on what’s happening. In a dystopian future, after a plague has killed millions and left few women, females are more rare than gold. They are treated like queens, chattel and slaves alike.  Flora and her friends are looking for a way to leave the ugliness of their pasts behind them as they join a group of survivors where there are rumors of a new way to reproduce, a place where gender is “fluid”. But is this really  a place of hope or just another place where the women will be exploited or enslaved? The first book in this series is still by far my favorite. The second didn’t appeal to me at all and I almost didn’t read this one, but I’m glad I did. Maybe it’s the times we are now living in, but I felt a real connection with Flora and the other women in a world so hostile to females
