Book Summary of The Handmaid's Tale In the near future in the former United States, the people of Gilead exist under strict, puritanical laws. Due to a toxic environment and science experimentation, male infertility threatens to obliterate the population. Commanders of the Faithful, the elite men who founded Gilead, assign themselves both Wives and Handmaids in an effort to produce viable offspring. Each woman conducts herself according to her station. The Wives garden, and the Handmaids submit to sexual relations with their Commander each month. Marthas cook and clean, and Aunts train new Handmaids and attend births. The rigid social structure prevents friendships and even human touch. Offred's name implies property belonging to the Commander named Fred. She longs to break free from the stifling constraints of her new existence and locate her husband and daughter. As weeks pass, she becomes better acquainted with her walking partner, Ofglen. A resistance group called Mayday wants Offred's assistance in spying on the Commander. Meanwhile, he begins breaking Gileadean rules by spending evenings alone with Offred. Tensions rise as Ofglen becomes more insistent. The Commander takes advantage of his authority over his Handmaid, and the driver named Nick seduces Offred. When the Commander's Wife arranges a tryst between Nick and Offred in the hopes of producing a baby for herself, their love affair threatens both of their lives.
