She knew this earth when it was perfect like her, for a time. Made by God in a manner like no other, she lived in utter peace without flaw in paradise until one fateful decision changed everything. Now, all humanity suffers for her mistake. But what did it feel like then to first sin and be exiled, to see all innocence crumble so vividly, and a strange new world take its place?
Experience the epic dawn of mankind through the eyes and heart of Eve the woman first known as Havah.
"A passionate and riveting story of the Bible's first woman. Lee's superior storytelling will have readers weeping for all that Havah forfeited by a single damning choice."
Eric Wilson, "New York Times" best-selling author
"Tosca Lee has breathed new life into the story we thought we all knew so well."
"Evocative, lush . . . This is not formula 'Christian Fiction' and avoids providing easy, spiritual answers to the inevitable questions the characters face."
"I have never read a novel twice, but I double-read this one, with intense delight to the last page, both times."
