Description
In this mesmerizing debut novel, Elissa Elliott blends biblical tradition with recorded history to put a powerful new twist on the story of creation's first family. Here is Eve brought to life in a way religion and myth have never allowed-as a wife, a mother, and a woman. With stunning intimacy, Elliott boldly reimagines Eve's journey before and after the banishment from Eden, her complex marriage to Adam, her troubled relationship with her daughters, and the tragedy that would overcome her sons, Cain and Abel. From a woman's first awakening to a mother's innermost hopes and fears, from moments of exquisite tenderness to a climax of shocking violence, Eve""explores the very essence of love, womanhood, faith, and humanity.
