The Farm by Joanne Ramos

What would you sacrifice for a new life?

Ambitious businesswoman Mae Yu runs Golden Oaks – a luxury retreat transforming the fertility industry – where women get the very best of everything, so long as they play by the rules.

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?

A brilliant, darkly funny novel that explores the role of luck and merit, class, ambition and sacrifice, The Farm is an unforgettable story about how we live and who truly holds power.

Peer & Press Reviews

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

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

Ramos has written a firecracker of a novel, at once caustic and tender, page-turning and thought-provoking.  This is a fierce indictment of the vampiric nature of modern capitalism, which never loses sight of the very human stories at its center.  Highly recommended.

Madeline Miller, author of Circe
