A nasty school for girls - very nasty. It's a school in the future where the objective is to be chosen by a man with a view to breeding sons. Not everyone gets picked to be a "companion", they could be "concubines" or "chastities". This was a wonderfully horrible look at the future or what the future could be. I was gripped by the scenario but not entirely by the story which I felt was overly long. None of the young ladies were particularly nice and were in fact mean and nasty to each other. I liked enough if this book to be interested in reading something else by this author.
