Although definitely fiction, I delighted in reading the musings and supporting events that "could have" been how it was for Eve, both in and outside of the Garden of Eden. This is however, not a book for a child's unguided reading. Eve is created an adult, and some of her adult musings and reflections are on subject matter that concerns her relationship and response to Adam as her husband and to other adult issues. These were written with an accurate portrayal of the innocence and purity of Maritial Love possible when two people are walking close to the Creator. It later indicates how differently love can be perceived, when a man and his wife loose touch with the GOD who designed this perfect system for relating to Him and to each other.

The author, Tosca Lee has studied extensively to get to know Her Creator. Remember always that this is not the Holy Bible but a novel containing a marvelous & imaginative extension of the basic Truth.

Tosca Lee has got to be one of the most talented authors in Christian fiction today. It has been such a long time since I read a novel with as much depth as this one had. Normally, I fly through books as so many of them have similar storylines and plot devices, but I found myself slowly and methodically reading this book, absorbing each and every page.

This book changed my perceptions of those early days from Genesis that I am familiar with. Tosca's ability to convey the joy of Adam and Eve's time in the garden was contrasted extremely well to their sudden flight after eating the fruit, along with their subsequent wonder of how they would survive. And while it's not the norm for Christian fiction, I appreciated Tosca going the extra mile in describing the love shared between Adam and Eve as husband and wife. It seems that lately this has been frowned upon by some Christian readers, but I found it to be completely natural and added that extra bit of realness to the story.

Not only is Havah a great addition to Christian fiction, it is a wonderful addition to the genre of Biblical fiction that is growing by leaps and bounds. I have found that these novels help me in my understanding of Biblical truths, and I always find myself going to the original source and comparing both works side by side. It is my belief that Tosca has found her niche with the Biblical fiction genre, and while I'm sure her newest novel with Ted Dekker is great, I'm eager for her next solo novel in the works called Iscariot.

Havah, Adam's chosen name for Eve, recounts her life from a singular vantage point. From having known only blissful innocence, she must struggle through every post-Garden moment. Frustration compounds her plight as she repeatedly attempts to regain her former idyllic existence and repeatedly fails.

Havah's life becomes a fight for survival once she and Adam are cast from the Garden, and Lee's poetic prose beautifully depicts the couple's slow surrender to a world tending to destruction. Havah gives birth, raises a brood of children, watches one son kill another, observes disease and death.

Yet all the while, she waits for the fulfillment of "the One" (God) who will bring reconciliation and redemption through her seed.

While not a fantastic read it was good and I found it most interesting. Like enough to finish the book.
