Dubray Review

How far would you go to save your daughter’s life? In the very near future, an epidemic has raged across the planet, infecting everyone and killing pregnant women and their babies. Society is in complete breakdown and the world’s population is dwindling dangerously.  Jessie Lamb is an ordinary teenage girl living in extraordinary and perilous times. Having quite logically and understandably rejected the options presented to her by adults, she looks on as her friends choose to take various actions against authority. And then Jessie makes a decision of her own; one that she believes will make a real difference and be of benefit to the world. Far from being just another post-apocalyptic, dystopian novel, Jessie’s story asks powerful, uncomfortable questions that will cause you to re-evaluate what you believe about the world we live in.

Mary Esther Judy, Galway


Women are dying in their millions. Some blame scientists, some see the hand of God. As she watches her world collapsing, Jessie Lamb decides she wants to make her life count. Would you let your daughter die if it would save the human race? The Testament of Jessie Lamb is the story of one daughter's heroism and one father's love.
