My Thoughts

This novel has fantastic descriptions that transported me to a fictional telling of the true story of Eve.  I felt her emotions and her struggles as she went from the perfect Eden to a scary sinful world.  I was struck for the first time, despite reading her story many times in the Bible, of the crazy circumstances Eve must have faced as one of two of the first humans on earth.  Despite the realistic sin told in the novel, there is a thread of hope in the book, especially since we know that the enemy has already been defeated.  I really liked the perspective of this book and once again, I felt like this author made the Bible come alive in a new way for me.  I highly recommend this book to those who love Biblical fiction and also to those who want to give Biblical fiction a try!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishing.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Thanks for stopping by!
