Havah: The Story of Eve, by Tosca Lee
Created, not born. Her name is Eve. Myth and legend shroud her in mystery. Now hear her story.
She knew this earth when it was perfect—as she was perfect, a creature without flaw. Created by God in a manner like no other, Eve lived in utter peace as the world’s first woman, until she made a choice, one mistake for which all of humanity would suffer. But what did it feel like to be the first person to sin and experience exile; to see innocence crumble so vividly; and to witness a new strange, darker world emerge in its place?
From paradise to exile, from immortality to the death of Adam, experience the epic dawn of mankind through the eyes and heart of Eve—the woman first known as Havah.
Eve by Elissa Elliott
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.
Eve by Marek Halter
The announcement of the Flood unleashes terror among men. They want to understand. What is this original fault of which they suffer punishment? What really happened in the Garden of Eden? Leaving the city of Enoch, they leave to question the first ancestors, Adam and Eve.
With Eve , Marek Halter focuses on the most mysterious and slanderous woman in the Bible. Eve, a myth unparalleled in human history, concludes Marek Halter’s fictional cycle of exploring for more than fifteen years the existence of the heroines of the three monotheistic religions: The Women of the Bible ( Sarah , 2003, Tsippora , 2003, Lilah , 2004), Marie (2006), and The Women of Islam ( Khadija , 2014, Fatima , 2015, Aicha , 2015). Translated into more than twenty languages, Marek Halter’s work has sold millions of copies around the world.
