Margaret Atwood’s “The Testaments”


The Testaments” is a novel by Margaret Atwood, slated for publication in 2019.

A sequel to her 1985 novel “The Handmaid’s Tale”, the novel will take place 15 years after Offred’s final scene in the original novel, and will be narrated by three female characters.

Atwood has not yet specified, however, whether any of the narrators will be characters already known from the original novel.

In this brilliant sequel to “The Handmaid’s Tale”, acclaimed author Margaret Atwood answers the questions that have tantalized readers for decades.

When the van door slammed on Offred’s future at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her—freedom, prison or death.

With “The Testaments”, the wait is over.

Margaret Atwood’s sequel picks up the story fifteen years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.”
