The school where KathyRuthTommy are educated—and where they learn slowly of their status as clones and their coming jobs as carers and donors—Hailsham is, at first, a paradise and refuge for the students. But as Kathy and the others grow older, they realize that Hailsham is simply a well-groomed way-station for them—a place where they are protected so they will be healthy organ-donors and gently nurtured to be predisposed toward accepting their organ-donor purpose.
