Overview

She knew this earth when it was perfect—like her, for a time. Made by God in a manner like no other, she lived in utter peace without flaw in paradise until one fateful decision changed everything. Now, all humanity suffers for her mistake. But what did it feel like then to first sin and be exiled, to see all innocence crumble so vividly, and a strange new world take its place?

Experience the epic dawn of mankind through the eyes and heart of Eve—the woman first known as Havah.

"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."

FictionAddict.com

"Evocative, lush . . . This is not formula 'Christian Fiction' and avoids providing easy, spiritual answers to the inevitable questions the characters face."

Synchronized Chaos

"I have never read a novel twice, but I double-read this one, with intense delight to the last page, both times."

Editorial Reviews

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.

    I Also Recommend:

    "That woman you gave me...."

    Occasionally, I volunteer to read a friend's book, they send it, and I recommend it if I like it. Tosca Lee sent me _Havah_, and I loved it from the moment Eve--Havah-- heard, "Wake."

    Suddenly, Havah's senses were filled with all the luscious sensations of a glorious world, a perfect man, all a perfect gift from God--to His creatures and to Himself.

    Tosca Lee took a short and powerful Bible story we've all heard a thousand times, and with her anointed imagination and much research, she created a wonderful, moving novel.

    She heightened emotions we all would feel in this setting, by showing the sinless purity of it all, the glory of the presence of God and the freshness of His perfect, untainted Creation. And she placed these emotions in this first woman so childlike in this heavenly place. Everything around Havah was more lovely than anything we could ever imagine. Including this amazing creature so like her, yet so different, her man.

    Together, they explored and discovered that world and each other, the joy of sinless love, of gorgeous and functional plants, awesome and affectionate animals, and the regular, tangible presence of the Creator. All was love, beauty, discovery, astonishment, delight. Worship.

    Then Havah encountered another beautiful and enticing creature--the Serpent. With the first question recorded in the Bible, he made her doubt. "Yea, has God really said?..."

    And soon the story turned dark. Eve went from complete, carefree joy to desperate despair, blame, guilt, terror. She called God's name and He did not answer.

    I love Bible prophecy, and have concluded that we are in the very last days before the Second Coming of Christ. Revelation 3 shows seven churches, and the last one before the voice says "Come up here" is the Laodicean Church. Among the interpretations of this is the belief that this is a literal time period. And it follows that that would be now. If so, much of today's church is "poor, wretched, miserable, blind, and naked." People suffer because of it, and so do animals. And of course, it started with Adam and Eve.

    The Bible says "Creation waits."

    With her beautiful prose and deep emotion, Tosca made it all so real, my heart broke. Tosca did not overplay this. But when Havah found sweet animals suffering and dead and swarms of flies, after all that beauty, joy and perfection, I had to put the book down for a long time.

    The exquisite beauty of the Garden of Eden was polluted. All because Eve had to have her way and eat that fruit. And Adam did not stop her. She was deceived. He disobeyed. He joined her. Then he blamed God:

    "That woman you gave me."

    Because the Serpent hated them so. (You can read more about the feelings of the Fallen Angels in Tosca Lee's amazing _Demon_.)

    Finally, months later, I had to know how Tosca handled the rest of the 900 years of Eve's life.

    And I was captivated by her depiction of the joys and challenges of family relationships--what was it like to be married to Adam? Of love and (necessary) incest, survival skills, practical arts, and new homesteads for offspring, and finally, new cities and foreign, false gods. All from venerated Mother Eve.

    And I rejoiced for her at the end. An end we all desire.

    I do recommend this amazing book for mature youth on up.

    An amazing telling of a familiar story

    I cannot say enough good things about this amazing book that I was fortunate to snag as a freebie. I would definitely encourage anyone at all interested to splurge and buy it though. It is so worth it!

    Tosca Lee takes the familiar story of Adam and Eve told briefly in Genesis and has imagined it into a novel that feels very much like what may have happened in the lives of the first man and woman. She looks at such ideas as what it must have been like to be "born" as a young man or woman instead of a baby. How would a person make his or her way in the world without having any example of an earthly parent to follow? What must it have been like to truly be the first?

    The Eden she describes is so beautiful -- with lions and lambs, foxes and deer all frolicking together in a true paradise. Adam and Eve -- or Havah -- in their early days in the garden are a mixture of child and grown-up; their first love and the delight they taken in each other in that garden so innocent and pure. They enjoy such closeness with God and with each other. Life was truly perfect, and yet they could not fight their curiosity about the one tree God had told them they must not touch.

    At its heart -- which Tosca so aptly describes as the most fragile and resilient of organs -- Havah is a story of faith and love, loss and redemption. After their exile from Eden, Adam and Havah face much strife as they learn to toil and carve out a life in the wilderness for themselves and their ever growing family. They face turmoil in their own relationship as the result of their guilt, anger and hurt over the decision they made to eat of the Fruit. They spend hundreds of years longing for redemption to come through their children and to once again see the garden they once called home. They must learn true faith and hope and in the end learn to trust God instead of trying to bring about redemption through their own means.

    Tosca Lee has written a beautiful novel that is full of hope and poetry and faith. I would recommend it not only to readers of Christian fiction but to anyone who loves a well-written story as it one of the best books I have read so far this year.

    Loved it!

    I will not make this a lengthy review as others have described this book far better than I can. I loved the character development, the writing style, and the realistic way the story plays out. I cried for Eve as she realized what her deed had cost her. You won't be disappointed. I was fortunate to get this as a free book offer or else I may have missed out on a great story. Read it!!!

    Wow

    There's really no other way to put it, this book was just simply amazing. She made the characters of the bible come to life...she made them human. Instead of demonizing Cain the way most stories I've read, she showed compassion and love. He no longer was simply the world's first villian, but someone who had life and a heavy burden on his shoulders as the promised seed who would one day step on the head of the serpent. To have that kind of weight on your shoulders from the moment you were born....well, show me a person today that holds that kind of thing over them and can walk around free as a bird. It took a book like this to show me Cain from a loving mother's eyes. To see this wonderful world from the time she was created to the time she passed through the eyes of not just a woman, but a person with feelings, simply put, it was a breath of fresh air.

    Life Changing Novel

    I'm still processing this book. It affected me on a very deep level. The writing style was simply to die for. Much of the novel reads like a gorgeous prose poem. The juxtaposition of explosive joy and unutterable sadness was almost more than my heart could bear. I never dreamed of reading a CBA book with such earthy sensuality. It ministered to my spirit something radical in the realm of sexual politics and the male/female relationship that my subconscious is still working out. All I know for sure is that this book changed my life.

    i absolutely LOVED this novel! i could not put it down and read

    i absolutely LOVED this novel! i could not put it down and read the entire thing in 2 short days! the imagery is vivid, the language amazing, the feelings so well described and real, tosca has opened up the first half of the book of Genesis in a way that i would have never imagined! i thought i wouldn't be interested in this book, but my spirit kept urging me to read it. when i finally cracked it open on my nook, i was upset that i'd waited so long! this book is now very precious to me and i am blessed to have it in my collection. beautifully written, and with careful consideration for the story of adam and eve, this book not only had me doing everything from laughing to crying to holding my breath, it has deepened my faith even more! this book couldn't have gotten any better than it is. BRAVO tosca lee! what an awesome read!!!

    Excellent Read!

    Wasn't entirely sure I was going to like Havah......BUT couldn't put it down once I started reading it! Although the Bible doesn't go into detail about Eve's thoughts and reactions, this book did very well in capturing what it must have been like. Also, after reading it, I felt the desire to re-read my Jean Auel series!

    Beautifully descriptive - Breathtaking

    Havah is the story of Adam and Eve. However, this is no Sunday School version! Author Tosca Lee has very skillfully taken the familiar Biblical tale and woven it into a rich tapestry full of unedited human drama, despair, pain, and triumph. The story is told from Eve's point of view, giving us a whole different perspective - right from the moment she wakes in the garden, to the subtle deception of the serpent, and on through almost 900 years of her struggles as matriarch of all humanity. Lee's writing is beautifully descriptive; the garden scenes were vibrant, imaginative, and alive with wonder. The vivid imagery continues throughout and the rawness and immediacy of the characters' emotions is palpable.
    Lee's Imaginative take on events as they unfolded was ambitious and overall, this was a very satisfying read. At times, however, I found Havah (Eve) frustratingly petulant and argumentative to the point of being petty. We see this side of her character so often as to almost make us unsympathetic toward her. She is sometimes even kniving, and there was almost a modern day sense of entitlement at times which I wondered at. I suppose when one takes into consideration that her struggles lasted for almost a millennium, one could cut her a little slack. In the end, Lee does a good job of showing us the first couple's humanity, it all its ruggedness and imperfection.
    As with any good novel, Havah stays with you long after putting it down. It raises many questions about what life was like in those early years, and Lee does a good job of sequencing the chain of events that could explain man's ancient development. Of course, as a work of fiction, it is not meant to be treated as Biblical or historical truth. It is one person's vision of what it 'might' have been like. In any case, Havah is worth reading and I highly recommend it. No wonder Tosca Lee is making her mark in the literary world.

    You know a book is good when you finish reading it and think to yourself "Man, do I love to read." That is what happened to me when I read Tosca Lee's "Havah: the story of Eve." When I wasn't reading it, I was literally dreaming about it.

    You know a book is good when you finish reading it and think to yourself "Man, do I love to read." That is what happened to me when I read Tosca Lee's "Havah: the story of Eve." When I wasn't reading it, I was literally dreaming about it. We know about Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and Lee fills the reader in on the in-between-the-lines as she would imagine it to have been. "Havah" starts off with a poetic feel, which is fitting, I think, coming from the female voice-that of Havah's. I think sometimes we get stuck in these stories we've always heard, barely understanding. Lee finds the heart of Eve in this story, connecting the reader to that which we came. I've recently started to track my family tree, and as I find things out about my ancestors I find out why I am certain ways. We are so lucky to have accounts of our earliest ancestors and Lee finds their humanness, connecting us to where we came. You will have to keep telling yourself that this is fiction; that it is not fiction at all. As soon as I closed the back cover, I cracked open Genesis, I just had to see where the lines crossed! I don't think I will ever read my bible the same again; I will try to look at the heart of who I am reading about.

    Wonderful book!

    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 many years. 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.

    The book Havah is the story of Eve from her creation to her death. I enjoyed this book because it was fascinating to me to grasp what her life might have been like from start to finish with all that she went through. It helps us connect with the first woman on a more personal level, as we journey from her days in bliss in the garden of Eden, to her and Adam's banishment, to them starting their family and living life with this sense of loss because they are no longer in paradise. It was also very interesting to see how, because she lived so much longer than we do now, she saw several generations of her lineage be born. I mean, everyone on Earth came from her. I've never thought about Eve and Adam that in depth until I read this novel.

    A very provocative book examining Havah/Eve and the garden in a new light, at least to me.  The concept of Havah meeting the devil before the  sin
    and then being tempted again and again is a revelation.  Also how the sin spread through the garden with the infected fruit making man a predator and a prey was also enlighting.
    Read and enjoy the raw visceral characters with the earthy yet aloof presence. The minds turning and questioning searching for the life they left to the life they now lead.
    Experience Havah!

    Unhappy

    I read Demon: A Memoir and loved it. I found Havah to be too far from scripture to get past the first 45 pages even considering it to be a work of fiction. As a christian, I could not finish it, nor will I recommend it.

    Awesome.

    I feel that this book really makes you think about what life was like for her. I have read as well as heard the story of Adam and Eve and this really just puts everything in perspective even from a fictional level. It is awesome, I am def going to look into her other book!

    Good read

    I wish she would of quoted scripture or footnotes to verses - otherwise it just felt like a story. Just my opinion.
