Pear is close to Jack and Kate. They're more or less the same age and they spend a lot of time together. Things are changing when Papa S. lets outsiders stay with them. A mother with her two children is allowed to join. At first they are happy to be there, but slowly bad things are starting to happen. Pearl will be forced to think about who she is and what Seed is really like...
Seed is a gripping story about a small group of people who are living in a community where things are going on that the younger members aren't aware of. Slowly the truth starts to come to the surface and Pearl is right in the middle of it. She doesn't know what she should believe any longer. She used to live a happy and protected life and I felt bad for her that it was about to come to an end. I really liked her and wanted her to be safe. I couldn't stop reading until I found out what would happen to her and the people she loves.
I loved the idea behind Seed. It's obvious that Lisa Heathfield has thought it through really well. The details were all exactly right. I immediately felt suffocated and loved that I was able to get so close to the story. This book is so creepy and the idea of not knowing what would happen next scared me as much as what actually did happen. I didn't want to know and I did want to know. I wanted to keep my eyes closed, but I also couldn't stop reading. Seed is unique and it's scary, it's a story that gets under your skin and will stay there for a very long time.
I couldn't put this book down, I picked Seed up earlier this afternoon and before I knew it it was dark outside and the rest of the day had gone without me realising.
What would you do if you discovered everything you'd learned or been taught was a lie?
Pearl has just become a woman and is looking forwards to one day becoming the companion of Papa S like many young girls have done before her. It's all she's ever wanted but the arrival of three new members to the community begins to awaken doubts within her and she finds herself questioning everything she's been brought up to believe in.
Pearl lives a happy, content and perfect life, she has everything she could ever need. A roof over her head, a family who loves her and food on the table. Food that is grown lovingly by the hands of the community she has grown up in, the only one she's ever known. The community of Seed.
Seed is run by Papa S, they all look up to him, they live their daily lives following his beliefs and thanking Mother Nature everyday for all she provides. Secure and happy in the knowledge that as long as they stick to the beliefs and live their lives by the rules their leader has put in place, that life will go on as Mother Nature has planned, together, perfect and happy, safe from the outside world. But things aren't always what they seem to be.
Seed is a coming of age story with a difference, it's both beautiful and horrifying and will open your eyes to the stark truth that goes on in places all over the world. We all want to have that ideal life, to be surrounded by people we love and to feel safe and content with everything we have but sometimes things are too good to be true. The story is beautifully written and the characters give us a peek into a world that many of us will have heard of and found ourselves wondering, what were they thinking? How couldn't they not see what was going on? Why didn't they leave or question things? To us looking in, these questions seem so simple, the signs so blaringly obvious but on reading this book you find yourself understanding why they didn't leave, why they weren't seeing what was really going on and why they didn't question things. The power that someone can have over a group of people is scary to witness, how easily someone can manipulate and control, how far they will go to make sure they maintain that control.
I really wasn't expecting this book to touch me in the way it has, It just grabs you, and doesn't let go. The character development was fantastic and I felt for them, I just wanted to grab them and save them, show them that the outside world isn't such a bad place.
