Publisher: Electric Monkey

Everything 15-year-old Pearl knows is Seed, the nature-loving community she’s lived in all her life: cut off from the outside world and led by the mysterious Papa S. All is happy and peaceful until teenage boy Ellis, his young sister and their mother join the community from the outside.

As Ellis questions Papa S’ absolute authority, Pearl starts to understand that there may be much darker motivations behind his leadership.

A shocking and tremendously thought-provoking tale of life in a cult, Seed slowly unravels Pearl’s childlike perceptions and follows her coming of age with huge sensitivity and power.

Heathfield’s stunning evocation of the beauty of nature is contrasted masterfully with the corruption of the humans that seek to appropriate it for their own ends. An uncompromising and truly fantastic read, Seed will stay with you for a long time.
