Gather the Daughters


A smoldering debut about a cult at the end of the world, the girls who begin to question the rules that bind them, and the island that constrains them.

Lush, vivid and chilling…A remarkable and unforgettable debut.

Edan Lepucki New York Times bestselling author of California

Lyrical and ferocious…An heir to the speculative creations of Margaret Atwood and Shirley Jackson.

Helene Wecker New York Times bestselling author of The Golem and the Jinni

…In her extraordinary first novel, Melamed pulls no punches…A gripping and elegantly-crafted read.

Joshua Gaylord author of When We Were Animals

Fearsome, vivid, and raw…A haunting work in the spirit of The Handmaid's Tale—but Melamed more than holds her own
