Havah: The Story of Eve is a wonderful re-telling of the dawn of mankind from Eve’s viewpoint. Tosca nicely imagines the life of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden and writes the story with an excellent literary prose which is bound to captivate readers. As a result of their decision to eat the “Forbidden fruit”, Adam and Eve lost their innocence, became separated from God and were exiled from the garden where they were forced to adopt agriculture under less than desirable circumstances for a living.

Their yearning to hear God’s voice again after the exile was saddening. They wanted to return to their birthplace and tried to find it their whole life, but all of their efforts were to no avail. They experience the many emotions of life – happiness, sadness, joy, sorrow, hope, heartbreak and despair. They lost their second son, under some extraordinary circumstances. This tragedy caused Eve to grieve for a long time. She remembered him even after a long time. Eve’s attempts to bring the dying Adam on a unsuccessful journey to return to Eden before he took his final breath was really touching. Even though there were some albatross between Adam and Eve, in her heart, Eve still loved Adam.
Tosca had imagined all these convincingly. The life of Adam and Eve before and after the exile was well-written. This book is truly a masterpiece! I really loved this beautiful tale and highly recommend it to everyone, especially Christian readers. I’m sure you’ll find it as interesting as I do.
