Outlawed

Author(s): Anna North

General Fiction

In the year of our Lord 1894, I became an outlaw. The day of her wedding, 17 year old Ada's life looks good; she loves her husband, and she loves working as an apprentice to her mother, a respected midwife. But after a year of marriage and no pregnancy, in a town where barren women are routinely hanged as witches, her survival depends on leaving behind everything she knows. She joins up with the notorious Hole in the Wall Gang, a band of outlaws led by a preacher-turned-robber known to all as the Kid. Charismatic, grandiose, and mercurial, the Kid is determined to create a safe haven for outcast women. But to make this dream a reality, the Gang hatches a treacherous plan that may get them all killed. And Ada must decide whether she's willing to risk her life for the possibility of a new kind of future for them all.

MATILDA BOOKSHOP REVIEW


‘In the year of our Lord 1894, I became an outlaw.’ What a first line! I was hooked right from the beginning . Anna Norths Outlawed is an alternate history set in the late 1800s and is the story of Ada, an apprentice midwife who cannot conceive a child. Sadly, Ada lives in a town where barren women are hanged as witches, so she runs away and joins the notorious Hole in the Wall Gang. Run by The Kid, the gang is trying to provide a safe place for outcast women. I loved this memorable, fast-paced, feminist western and highly recommend it. Jo
