I received a digital reading copy of this from Pan Macmillan via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Set in a dystopian world where single women are monitored for signs of witchcraft, The Women Could Fly is a simple novel of grief & self discovery steeped in magical realism. Fourteen years after her mother's disappearance Josephine is still dealing with her grief and grappling with the unfair world she lives in and struggling with how her country & society controls its citizens. More social commentary than gripping story, it isĀ  worth the read for sarcasm and defiance of the protagonist and if you enjoy a meandering prose of thoughts.
