The winner of the poll is "The Gate to Women's Country", a sci-fi, fantasy best seller novel-
"It describes a world set three hundred years into the future after a catastrophic war which has fractured the United States into several nations. The setting of the story is Women's Country, apparently in the former Pacific Northwest. They have evolved in the direction of Ecotopia, reverting to a sustainable economy based on small cities and low-tech local agriculture. They have also developed a matriarchy where the women and children live within town walls (so-called women's country) with a small number of male servitors, and most of the men live outside the town in warrior camps."
I am not typically into reading sci-fi' or fantasy but the Hunger Games trilogy came out and I grew a new respect for that genre. The Gate .... has received nothing but great reviews from both men and women so I hope the majority of the book club members receive the book well also.
The book consists of 318 pages so I gave us a 6 week window to read it. I think this should be a proficient amount of time to read it but I have no problem adding more time to read the book if you folks feel you need it. Just email me and let me know.
