Women Talking by Miriam Toews

With 14 Oscar nominations and an incredible cast, Women Talking is top of our list of book adaptions to watch this year and while we're a little biased, we definitely think it's always worth reading the book first!
"In a remote Mennonite colony, over a hundred girls and women were knocked unconscious and violated-by what many thought were ghosts or demons-as punishment for their sins. Their accounts were chalked up to 'wild female imagination.' Women Talking is an imagined response to these real events. When the women learn that they were in fact drugged and attacked by men in their community, they hold a secret meeting in a hayloft.

They have two days to make a plan before the rapists are bailed out and brought home: will they dare to escape?"
