About the book: The first love story on earth... Haunting... Lyrical... Unforgettable...
In a world where everything is perfect, yet the same day after day, Eve must decide if she wants to live forever in the garden with Adam and never know what lies beyond the walls. When she makes a choice with terrible consequences, the pain of mortality is swift. As she and Adam explore their new world, and her body changes, Eve discovers the sweetness of first love with the man who has always been at her side.
My Review: Wow, I have never thought of the story of Adam and Eve in this way before! I loved this book! I loved the way that Adam and Eve are portrayed. This book takes Adam and Eve from their beloved home in the Garden of Eden, through their fall and into the wilderness, cut off from the God they once were on intimate terms with.
I liked that the book showed some of both Adam's and Eve's views, during and after their time in the Garden. I loved that it made me think more about Adam and Eve and wonder about how they would have spent their time in the Garden and how they would have adapted after they were removed from it. I liked that it showed Eve after their fall, and she felt...powerless really. Adam is injured and she has no idea how to help him or even how to care for herself in the situation. She ends up basically forced to take help from Lucifer, whether she wants to or not. It left me thinking about the strength of this amazing first mother of ours.
The characters were great, I found myself rooting for Adam and Eve as they were learning new skills after their removal from the garden. I thought that H B Moore did a great job with the character of Lucifer as well, he is a bit mysterious, and a bit creepy all at the same time. I can see how Eve was drawn to him, but also repulsed at the same time.
This book has a great plot that will leave you wanting more! H B Moore is really a master at this kind of historical fiction writing, this whole book was amazing. Don't miss it!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
