Book Talk Tuesday: Havah

Havan-the-Story-of-Eve-Tosca-Lee.jpgHavah by Tosca Lee is an excellent read.

The story is a first-person account from Eve’s point of view.

It took me a few chapters to really get into and enjoy the story. But once I did, I was hooked.

As a reader, I was intrigued with Lee’s take on life in Eden before the Fall and the changes that ensued when Adam and Eve bit the forbidden fruit.

The writing is lovely. Lyrical, nearly poetry in many areas. Lee’s research is obvious, but not obtrusively so. More in an oh-of-course-why-didn’t-I-think-of-that? way.

When God told Eve that her seed would crush the serpent’s head, she must have believed that her son would be the fulfillment of that promise. Which made Cain’s murder of Abel even more tragic for her.

A friend recommended this book. I don’t usually read biblical fiction, but I’m glad I made an exception for Havah.
