Life is a lucrative business, as long as you play by the rules...

Ambitious businesswoman Mae Yu runs Golden Oaks - a luxury retreat transforming the fertility industry. There, women get the very best of everything: organic meals, fitness trainers, daily massages and big money. Provided they dedicate themselves to producing the perfect baby. For someone else.

Jane is a young immigrant in search of a better future. Stuck living in a cramped dorm with her baby daughter and her shrewd aunt Ate, she sees an unmissable chance to change her life. But at what cost?

Welcome to The Farm.

Joanne Ramos was born in the Philippines and moved to Wisconsin when she was six. She graduated with a BA from Princeton University.

This is her first novel.

Wow, Joanne Ramos has written the page-turner about immigrants chasing what's left of the American dream. Truly unforgettable * Gary Shteyngart, New York Times bestselling author of Super Sad True Love Story and Lake Success * A chillingly plausible imagination of the future of pregnancy in a world of ever-greater inequality ... Sharply prescient, and terrifying too * Sophie Mackintosh, author of the Booker-longlisted The Water Cure * The Farm terrifies with a simple question: How much of ourselves are we willing to sell? With characters so real they leap off the page, Ramos yanks the reader into a world of Haves and Have-Nots, and her question lingers long after we turn the final page * Christina Dalcher, author of Vox * A highly original and provocative story about the impossible choices in so many women's lives. These characters will stay with me for a long time * Karen Thompson Walker, author of 'The Age of Miracles' * Compelling, thought-provoking and beautifully-written, The Farm is a knock-out debut novel. I'm still thinking and worrying about the characters a week after finishing * Paula Daly, author of 'Open Your Eyes' *
