The Misconceiver

£2.49

Product description

Set in an authoritarian society in the near future, this is the story of Phoebe, a "misconceiver" - an illegal and dangerous occupation after the repeal of the abortion laws in 2011. In an increasingly authoritarian society, she restores to women some control over their bodies. Yet her own life is restricted by the secrecy in which her activities have to be cloaked, and she has growing qualms about her vocation.
Shattered by the death of a twelve-year-old girl she failed to help, Phoebe leaves herself vulnerable to betrayal. Forced to confront the conflicting elements of her double life, she must choose between revenge and forgiveness; between love and political action.....


Initials of previous owner written at top of fly leaf. Otherwise this book is in very good condition.

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
