The Carhullan Army

by Sarah Hall - £8.99  Faber (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571236602 | ISBN 10: 057123660x

Set in the part of England once known as The Lake District, "The Carhullan Army" is narrated by a young woman who has adopted the name Sister. Britain after its union with the United States and numerous unsuccessful foreign wars, has found itself in the grip of a severe fuel crisis and the country is now under the control of a severe body known as The Authority. All fire-arms have been handed over to the Government and all women have been fitted with contraceptive devices; this Britain of the near-future is brutal. Sister's only hope lies in finding the Carhullan Army: a mythical band of women who live a communal existence in the remote hills of Cumbria. Sarah Hall's novel is about women, terrorism, and individual choice.
