Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Lee surprised the evangelical Christian literary world with her acclaimed Demon: A Memoir. Her fans will be equally pleased with her newest, a passionate and riveting story of the Bible's first woman and her remarkable journey after being cast from paradise. Havah, Adam's chosen name for Eve, recounts her life from a singular vantage point. From having known only blissful innocence, she must struggle through every post-Garden moment. Frustration compounds her plight as she repeatedly attempts to regain her former idyllic existence and repeatedly fails. Havah's life becomes a fight for survival once she and Adam are cast from the Garden, and Lee's poetic prose beautifully depicts the couple's slow surrender to a world tending to destruction. Havah gives birth, raises a brood of children, watches one son kill another, observes disease and death. Yet all the while, she waits for the fulfillment of "the One" (God) who will bring reconciliation and redemption through her seed. Lee's superior storytelling will have readers weeping for all that Havah forfeited by a single damning choice.

Review

“A passionate and riveting story of the Bible’s first woman. Lee’s superior storytelling will have readers weeping for all that Havah forfeited by a single damning choice.” (Publisher's Weekly Starred Review)

“The story of Eve comes alive in this interpretation of the first people of the Bible. Even today, this story of love, longing, and loss offers encouragement.” (Romantic Times)

“Much has been written about Eve… but I doubt her heart has ever been so deeply plumbed as in this lyrical novel by Tosca Lee.” (Historical Novel Reviews)

“Rich and mesmerizing. Tosca Lee’s prose is breathtaking, her story of grace utterly transforming. Havah is nothing less than a masterpiece.” (Nicole Baart, Author of Sleeping in Eden)

“I found myself fascinated by Tosca Lee’s mind, her capacity to spin a story, and the sheer volume of research that must’ve informed this compelling read.” (Mary DeMuth, author of Daisy Chain)

“In Havah, Lee demonstrates her ability to develop a character that goes far beyond cliché. Lee dares again to look into Christian assumption.” (Lincoln Journal-Star)

“An extraordinary book about an extraordinary woman. Tosca Lee has given us a bold retelling of a tale we all thought we knew.” (Randy Ingermanson, Christy Award-Winning author of Retribution)

Havah is a novel with boundless imagination.” (Eric Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of Field of Blood and Fireproof)
