Paradise Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Paradise

A group of women attempt to overcome the status quo of "Paradise" by setting up their own commune, only to suffer the consequences of their actions. Racial hated and gender issues abound, but the true message of the story is an analogy about myth making and bending history to fit personal prejudices.
