Book Description:

In this historical fiction story, the author weaves the modern Darwinian theory into the fabric of the biblical Genesis story of the (Garden) Valley of Eden which has its origins in the ancient Sumerian Gilgamesh epic and the Mesopotamian epic, Atrahasis.
The story takes the reader through an imaginative path from Adam and Eve’s life before the Valley of Eden, the mythical encounter in the Garden, the expelling from the Valley, their life outside the Valley raising their family and finally, the consummation of their lives.
Through the author’s proficient style of building depth in each character through their deeds, conversation and thought processes, the reader is skillfully drawn into the story; a modern day take on an old story of good and evil. (Rita Westphal)

Even if you have read the Old Testament all your life, you will be intrigued by Ms. Nickum's evocative portrayal of the familiar Genesis characters Eve, Adam, and their children. As the title character, Eve is brought to life as a brave and competent problem-solver. She is a force to be reckoned with, and springs from the page as an independent person with strong opinions about her role as a woman, a wife, and a mother--in other words, as humanity's first feminist. This unique story of early woman and man stays true to science, while nudging the reader to imagine both the fine details of their daily lives and the interplay of their personalities. I highly recommend this fascinating, well-written book.
