Summary
England is in a state of environmental crisis and economic collapse. There has been a census, and all citizens have been herded into urban centers.

A girl who will become known only as "Sister" escapes the confines of her repressive marriage to find an isolated group of women living as "un-officials" in Carhullan, a remote northern farm, where she must find out whether she has it in herself to become a rebel fighter
