Jessie Lamb is an ordinary girl living in extraordinary times. Women are dying in their millions and if the human race is to survive, it’s up to her. But are Jessie’s actions heroic? Or is she, as her father fears, impressionable and incapable of understanding the consequences? Set just a month or two into the future, in a world irreparably altered by an act of biological terrorism, The Testament of Jessie Lamb explores a young woman’s determination to make her life count for something.
