The Farm by Joanne Ramos centers around a group of young women who act as pregnancy surrogates for rich women. But this isn’t your normal surrogacy program. These women live at a highly controlled farm and lose all their rights for the duration of the pregnancy.
Through the story, Ramos examines themes such as income disparity, the way we treat immigrants, feminism, parenthood, and power. It’s thought-provoking and a darn fine story.
