The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham

In a small English village, an inexplicable event causes everyone within its boundaries to fall unconscious for an entire day. When they awaken, it's discovered that all women of childbearing age are pregnant, and the children born from these pregnancies are eerily identical with golden eyes and telepathic abilities. As these children grow, their collective power increases, causing fear and tension among the villagers. The narrative explores themes of fear of the unknown, societal norms, and the power dynamics between adults and children.
