Book Review: Seed

Title Seed

Author Lisa Heathfield

Release Date March 10, 2015

All that Pearl knows can be encapsulated in one word: Seed. It is the isolated community that she was born into. It is the land that she sows and reaps. It is the center of her family and everything that means home. And it is all kept under the watchful eye of Papa S.

At fifteen years old, Pearl is finally old enough to be chosen as Papa S.’s companion. She feels excitement . . . and surprising trepidation that she cannot explain. The arrival of a new family into the Seed community—particularly the teenage son, Ellis—only complicates the life and lifestyle that Pearl has depended upon as safe and constant. Ellis is compelling, charming, and worldly, and he seems to have a lot of answers to questions Pearl has never thought to ask. But as Pearl digs to the roots of the truth, only she can decide what she will allow to come to the surface.

Lisa Heathfield’s suspenseful, scintillating debut features a compelling voice that combines blithe naïveté, keen observation, and sincere emotion.

This is the kind of book that I absolutely love. It's got a wonderful story, interesting characters, and is well written. It was incredibly hard to put this book down whenever I really needed to. I absolutely recommend this book.

The only negative thing that I can really say about Seed is that it ended on a cliffhanger. And, really, that's not a bad thing as it is a frustrating thing. Cliffhangers can make a reader crazy! However, the letter to the reader in the beginning of the ARC states that this is part one of a two part series, so I am certainly eager to get my hands on the second book as soon as possible.


5 out of 5 stars
