Follow Me to Ground Synopsis

Longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize 2019

Winner of the Kate O'Brien Award Longlisted for Republic of Consciousness Award

Sick is sick is sick. It s got to go somewhere. Ada, a girl who hasn't gone quite to plan, and Father live a quiet life together, in a clearing in the woods outside of town. They spend their years tending to local Cures the human folk who come to them, cautiously, with various ailments, and for whom they care little. Ada embarks on a disquieting relationship with a local Cure named Samson, much to the displeasure of her father and Samson s widowed, pregnant sister. When Ada is forced to choose between her old and new lives, what she does will change the town and The Ground itself forever. Follow Me To Ground is an unnerving, beautifully controlled tour-de-force, a sinister tale that questions our preconceptions of predator and prey and the consequences of unchecked desire.
