As a radical feminist, Antonia has never believed in band-aid political solutions. After years of planning, she and her lover—the charismatic and bipolar Josephine—found an independent nation for women on an abandoned oil rig. At first, they thrive. Thirty women transform the barren platform into a lush garden, capable of supplying their every need. An Eden made by Eves. But the quest for purity supplants radical action, and tears the community apart. Antonia loses the battle to save their vision—and nearly her life.

Dr. Katherine North is not a sentimental woman. But after she reads that an old lover has died, she’s driven to make peace with the woman who still haunts her, the deeply religious and conservative Amanda. When Katherine finds her, she discovers that Amanda has rewritten the history of their love affair and renounced her in the name of God.

Growing up working-class and Catholic, Kitty Trevelyan never considered abortion when she got pregnant at eighteen. Now, at forty-one, she no longer believes that life begins at conception, but knows that hers certainly ended with it. Still, she loves her kids, and she's finally working on a college degree. She's been happily married twenty-three years. Happily enough.  Until her professor, Faye, asks her for coffee and kisses her.

Three very different women. All forty-one. With the same birthday. With the same birthmark. As the parallel lines of their lives converge, we realize what connects them: they were all once the same seventeen-year-old girl on an April morning, wondering whether she would be brave. 

Praise

"Three is the novel I've been waiting for. It's a story as steady and true as a heartbeat, building slowly to a wild storm where utopias turn dystopian and then back again. It's both a cautionary tale of courage and cowardice and a battle call where the personal and the political shatter and mend each other. And Three is a book of such beauty that it could change the world."
—Derrick Jensen, author of Endgame

Three is a novel for the radical heart. It's a story for both the brave and the weary, lush with our passions, poignant with loss. It's a map through the territory we must travel to find that shining world of our dreams, a world that a tiny few refuse to abandon despite our endless defeats. If you have longed to hear Eliot's mermaids singing, ached for the courage to eat that peach, Three will show you how. What Monahan has written is, finally, Woolf's trip to the lighthouse. It may be an abandoned oil rig at this point in the destruction of the planet, but the unrelenting beauty of Three is enough to make it bloom.”
—Lierre Keith, author of The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability
