Years ago (5+) my grandmother had my aunt buy her an ebook from an author who recently died (at the time) and it was published after her death. The author believed she was reincarnated from the alien creatures from this story, its strange enough for me to remember that part of the prolog. I started the ebook but didn't finish it and i'd like to continue reading it but i've forgotten the title and author.

It was a book about people who were descended from vegetables and evolved into humanoids with green skin. They lived on a planet that had very harsh winds/weather and people died on a regular basis from it. I think they farmed moss in caves and other veggies to survive and if they did not get regular sunlight they wilted away and died. They believed the weather was sent to them by 'Gods' as punishment for something. Later in the story a young man was born with strange physical features and was herding sheep like creatures from patches of moss and found melons which tasted like nothing they'd eaten before. Eventually the story skipped several generations and the people are living under domes to protect them from the elements.

I stopped reading shortly into this part, does it sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks for updating us fallen! I must admit I have not come across that author and it does sound like a pretty strange story!

Update on this old Search query:

I got a copy based on the original query, it sounded interesting.

Take my advice and don't repeat my mistake, it's utter sh*t.

The author is the same who wrote "Flowers in the attic", if you've read that and liked it then you might enjoy this, if you didn't then avoid it like the plague
