Evie knows she must put the good of the community before all else―that is the only way to fix the problems that led to the Great Flood. But when she is sent as a spy to a society less restrictive than her own, she must choose between loyalty to all she knows, and freedom in the world outside.
Many years later, Evie’s name has become a symbol of revolution. But Bertram uncovers a secret that changes everything he thought he knew. He must decide whether to reveal the truth, or protect the fragile peace of his society. In his journey, he encounters time-travelling historians intent on preventing apocalypse by communicating with Laura, a woman from before the Great Flood.
Laura is convinced her new born baby speaks to her, and must decide whether to trust herself, or the doctors telling her she is crazy.
Through these three intertwined stories, The Red Hairband explores the inhumanity that is brought about when we are too certain of our beliefs.
