It is really interesting to read this author's imagination of biblical accounts! It made (for me) Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel so much more *real* to me. I really enjoyed this novel, however, I really didn't care for how it was written "backwards"--starting from the murder and ending with the banishment. I would recommend this novel.

This was a compelling story about Cain, Abel, Adam, Eve and the rest of the family. I liked how the story went backwards in time starting with Cain's imminent death and ending with Adam and Eve leaving the Garden of Eden. I also liked how David Maine stretched out the story line so that Cain's offering being rejected isn't followed immediately by his murdering Abel.
