Alexandra Cameron is an Australian living in London with her husband and son. She has a BA in Film and French, and a background in film and television production and development. She studied novel-writing at City University in London and was mentored by author Jill Dawson. Rachael's Gift is her first novel.
Set in a dystopian future where womenís rights have been removed, the Handmaidís Tale follows Offred, a concubine to a high-ranking officer of the new regime, and her struggle for freedom. First discovered during high school, I became an avid follower of Atwood ever since. I lived and breathed every moment of Offredís suppression as if it was my very own. Revisiting the Tale again, it is more current then ever and a frightening vision of a possible future. Itís books like these that make dictators afraid. Absolutely life-changing.
