Nestled in New York s Hudson Valley is a luxury retreat boasting every amenity: organic meals, personal fitness trainers, daily massages and all of it for free. In fact, you re paid big money to stay here more than you ve ever dreamed of. The catch? For nine months, you cannot leave the grounds, your movements are monitored, and you are cut off from your former life while you dedicate yourself to the task of producing the perfect baby. For someone else.

Jane, an immigrant from the Philippines, is in desperate search of a better future when she commits to being a Host at Golden Oaks or the Farm, as residents call it. But now pregnant, fragile, consumed with worry for her family, Jane is determined to reconnect with her life outside. Yet she cannot leave the Farm or she will lose the life-changing fee she ll receive on the delivery of her child.

Gripping, provocative, heartbreaking, The Farm pushes to the extremes our thinking on motherhood, money, and merit and raises crucial questions about the trade-offs women will make to fortify their futures and the futures of those they love.

NOMINATED FOR THE NAACP IMAGE AWARD LONGLISTED FOR THE CENTER FOR FICTION FIRST NOVEL PRIZE

So many factors gender, race, religion, class may determine where you come down on the surrogacy debate. . . . Ramos plays with many of these notions in her debut novel, The Farm, which imagines what might happen were surrogacy taken to its high-capitalist extreme. . . . The stage is set for lively book chat. The New York Times Book Review (Editors Choice)

A thrilling read. New York 

Grippingly realistic. Entertainment Weekly

Brilliant. New York Post

A provocative idea, and Ramos nails it . . . Crisp and believable, this smart debut links the poor and the 1 percent in a unique transaction that turns out to be mutually rewarding. People

Wow, Joanne Ramos has written the page-turner about immigrants chasing what s left of the American dream. . . . Truly unforgettable. Gary Shteyngart, New York Times bestselling author of Super Sad True Love Story and Lake Success
