Eve: In the Beginning/H.B. Moore
"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."
What a great perspective on the life of our Mother Eve! I couldn't imagine starting out with nothing, and experiencing things for the first time without having knowledge before hand of the obstacles outside of their Eden.
The first half of the book has to do with Adam and Eve living in the garden. When things start changing with the now sudden appearance of Lucifer, they don't know what to make of it since living in pretty much the same routine day by day.
The last half of the book deals with them out in the world. Experiencing their first snow, their first kill, all that comes with a life and surviving it.
I love the relationship between Adam and Eve and the constant support they gave each other while trying to make sense of their new world.
Although we really don't know how hard life really was for our first parents, Heather probably wasn't far off any of the struggles they most likely had to endure. I am even more grateful now then ever before for their sacrifice!
