"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."
Eric Wilson, New York Times best-selling author
"Tosca Lee has breathed new life into the story we thought we all knew so well."
"Evocative, lush . . . This is not formula 'Christian Fiction' and avoids providing easy, spiritual answers to the inevitable questions the characters face."
"I have never read a novel twice, but I double-read this one, with intense delight to the last page, both times."
Told in first person narrative from Havahs perspective, this novel portrays the intense and real relationship that actually might have occurred between the first man and woman and then later with their children. Among many others, Lee explores the concepts of walking with God, paradise, a talking serpent, the mark of Cain, and life in exile. What secrets died with the first couple? Did they ever try to go back to Eden? Did Cain mean to kill Abel? Did they ever see Cain again?
Although Lee clearly takes dramatic license with this story, literature has yet to provide such a holistic portrayal of the character of Havah (Eve) and her lifes journey. Although she awakens with the personality and knowledge of an infant, Havah quickly grows into a fiery woman who knows what she wants and is fiercely protective of her family. She is a woman who receives dreams and visions from the One, from seeing the creation of the world to the prediction of strife between her first two sons.
Throughout the novel is the theme of promise. Havah holds on like a lifeline to the Ones prediction of her seed crushing the serpents head under his heel, and she believes that once her son has defeated the serpent she and her family will be able to return to paradise. Havahs view on what humanity lost in the Fall adds a new and more colored perspective to how we see our present state of life.
The story ends as poetically as it begins. Women will feel an affinity with Havah as she learns how to live and find pleasure in a fallen world, as she seeks what she has lost. Satisfying and thought-provoking, Tosca Lees Havah: The Story of Eve is recommended for anyone looking for a new and entertaining perception of the first woman and the start of humanity.

What was your motivation behind this project? I've said before that writing Havah is the second hardest thing I've ever done. I wrote it with love, pain, joy and fear... and so many questions. Where was Eden? Where was the garden within it? What would it look like to walk with God in the cool of the afternoon? What does a woman think about a talking snake? Did other animals "talk? Where was Adam, after all, when Eve took that fateful bite? Did they know something had changed immediately after eating it? Did they immediately feel themselves begin to die? What did they have for guidelines for living in the absence of law? Why exactly did God not favor Cain's sacrifice? What was Cain's mark? Where was Nod? Did Eve ever reconcile who the serpent was? Did they ever try to return to the garden? Did they ever see Cain again? What secrets remained to them alone, that they might not have passed on? In the end, I can't claim that I know the answers. I chose the most plausible conclusions based on my research or those solutions that worked best for the story. Each of these items is answered, to the best of my ability for now, within the pages of Havah. See what you think.
