Imagine living in a time when infertility runs rampant and babies are no longer being born. The world is crumbling around you as people start talking about the end. This is the world Hazel DeSales grew up in. After her mother dies from a mysterious cancer, Hazel finds herself taking care of her younger sister Netty and alcoholic father. It's not until twenty women, known as the Elect, become pregnant all across the Barronlands when things start looking up. Hazel and Netty apply for jobs working as domestics in the Antioch Center where the Elect will be taken care of and protected. Hazel feels change in the air and her outlook for the future starts to improve. But she soon learns that change is not without consequence. Rumors are brewing about a government cover up and Hazel finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time, overhearing sensitive information not meant for her ears. So begins the unraveling of secrets that uncover things from her past and rattle her future. Hazel is determined to seek the truth and promises herself to do whatever it takes to succeed.… (mais)

“The Twenty” by Claudia Carozza was an absolutely riveting read. I was enthralled by the style of Carozza’s writing. She seamlessly wove her words into a beautiful story of love, betrayal, destruction and hope. An extremely difficult task for any author, however, Carozza does it effortlessly.

When I first read the synopsis, it grabbed my attention because it reminded me of Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” The stories both include the plot of a barren society with just a few who can carry children. However, that is where the similarities end. Carozza actually injected hope into a desperate situation. And instead of passive characters, Carozza’s characters are very self-reliant and strong, proving that they can forge their own destiny. I liked “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but not as much as I liked “The Twenty.” Yes, I am serious. It was that good.

Plus, an added bonus is that “The Twenty” is the first novel of The Barronlands Trilogy. That makes me super happy because I cannot wait to find out how the story of Hazel progresses. I am also curious about Claudia Carozza, the author of “The Twenty.” She is a young author (& a fellow Taurus!) and I see a beautiful future for her in the world of books!

5 stars for “The Twenty” ( )
