    I’d be interested in a compare/contrast of this and “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Different genres and different focuses, of course, but with common elements of forced coupling and forced birthing.
    I wonder if Apokedak ever touches on the possibility that Repentance may decide to never marry and never have children because those two ideas have too much emotional baggage and trauma attached to them. Is it me, or is deliberate childlessness weirdly controversial in Christian subculture? I get it on an intellectual level, but I have a hard time grokking on an emotional level why people should care if other people have children anymore than they should care if other people have an RV or whatever. Not your circus, not your monkeys, yanno?

What do you think?
