The Republic of Gilead allows Offred only one function - to breed. If she deviates, she will, like all dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on whom her future hangs.

I really enjoyed this, although the novel really only covers the first of the three seasons of the TV series, I did find it a little slow, but nevertheless a good read.
