Havah: The Story of Eve by Tosca Lee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars Tosca Lee follows her stunning debut novel "Demon: A Memoir" with her richly imagined, scripturally based "Havah: The Story of Eve."
In her first moments in the Garden of Eden, Havah (Eve) hears a whisper in her ear, then within her mind: "Wake." So begins her brief moment in paradise, the mere blink of an eye in her 1000-year lifespan.
Whether one believes in a literal Garden of Eden on earth, Adam and Eve as entities in another dimension, or a figurative story of paradise from the realm of archetype, Lee's "Havah" retains the spirit of the mythic stories we know of the Garden before and after the fall of man.
