Johnathon Majorabout this book: The Nectar Fields is the debut novella by British author Johnathon Major. An allegorical take on slavery, The Nectar Fields is an inspiring and tragic story of the battle to keep hope alive in the midst of great suffering.
Set amid the beauty of vast plains and vibrant forests, The Nectar Fields follows the lives of five butterflies on the farm of the dreaded Mister Bairon, a bee who has a weakness for honey and a disposition to vicious rages.
After a visit from Mister Bradford, a depraved socialite and owner of the region's hive, the butterflies find themselves faced with even greater struggles as they attempt to keep themselves from the tempers and lusts of two masters.
When the farm is plunged into further depths of darkness by an unexpected death, the remaining butterflies set into motion a daring plan of escape, one that will bring an end to it all.
An unforgettable tale, The Nectar Fields will stay with you long after you've finished reading.
