Summary

In the year of our Lord 1894, I became an outlaw.

The day of her wedding, 17-year-old Ada's life looks good; she loves her husband, and she loves working as an apprentice to her mother, a respected midwife. But after a year of marriage and no pregnancy, in a town where barren women are routinely hanged as witches, her survival depends on leaving behind everything she knows. 

She joins up with the notorious Hole in the Wall Gang, a band of outlaws led by a preacher-turned-robber known to all as the Kid. Charismatic, grandiose and mercurial, the Kid is determined to create a safe haven for outcast women. But to make this dream a reality, the gang hatches a treacherous plan that may get them all killed. And Ada must decide whether she's willing to risk her life for the possibility of a new kind of future for them all. 

Featuring an irresistibly no-nonsense, courageous and determined heroine, Outlawed dusts off the myth of the old West and reignites the glimmering promise of the frontier with an entirely new set of feminist stakes. Anna North has crafted a pulse-racing saga about the search for hope in the wake of death, and for truth in a climate of small-mindedness and fear.

Great feminist twist on a western

Enjoyable, but left me with too many unanswered questions. Should've delved deeper into the storyline

Narrator was awful

I couldn’t even get past the first hour of this novel. The narrator made everyone sound the same, so confusing. Her reading just didn’t draw me into this book.
