A provocative epic of a story we know so well-or do we? Once expelled from the Garden, Adam and Eve had to find their way past recriminations and bitterness to build a new life in a harsh land. In Fallen, David Maine has drawn a convincing, enthralling portrait of a family-one driven (and riven) by familiar passions and jealousies. The result is a staggering achievement an intimate, hilarious, and utterly original telling of temptation and murder and of exile and loss. Praise for The Preservationist: "Inventive re-imagining of the Biblical flood tale for a 21 st-century audience." - People "An elegant, inventive book... that] envisions the events in Noah's life with awe and realism." - The New York Times "A brilliant, kaleidoscopic analysis of the situation...this debut is a winner." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Author David Maine brings motive and inner dialogue to the story, and narrator Simon Vance brings those elements alive." AudioFile Magazine.

Praise For Fallen

"Author David Maine brings motive and inner dialogue to the story, and narrator Simon Vance brings those elements alive, from Cain's rage at the God who cast his parents from Eden and his regret at his murder of Abel, to Eve's fears during the first childbirth and Abel's and Adam's faithful love of God."---AudioFile
