Havah by Tosca Lee

It is just after the beginning of time in the Garden of Eden. Eve has just been created, and Adam is the only other human in existence. It is paradise. Pain doesn’t exist, evil is unfathomable, and the fruits of the earth flourish incredibly. Then with a single bite of a seductive fruit man is cursed with sin and mortality. But the story does not end there, obviously not, or you would not exist. This is the story of Havah – mother of all.

This story is told in first person, the perspective of Havah. I love how this story is told in first person because it shows all the emotions that must have taken place in the dramatic events. This story takes the first few chapters of Genesis and turns it into a whole book filling in gaps to create a story that I think is probably quite close to the actual historical events. This book forever changed my viewpoint of the story and gave me a new respect for it all. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about Adam and Eve. Supreme job Tosca!
