In her debut novel The Farm (Random House), Joanne Ramos ’95 asks, “Would you trade nine months of freedom for a better life?” After making it through the selective host process, Jane arrives at the Farm, where she will spend nine months in luxury as she attempts to produce the perfect baby for the site’s überwealthy clients. But despite the lucrative fee she will receive upon delivery, Jane longs to reconnect to her life, and her daughter, on the outside. Provocative and suspenseful, The Farm challenges notions about motherhood and money.
