The Garden

By Elsie Aidinoff

Published Jan 2010

In the beautiful Garden of Eden there is God.
Magnificent, all-powerful and dangerous.

And there is the Serpent. A wise, loving and seductive teacher, ready to nurture Eve’s every moment.

And then there is Adam. Lithe, beautiful and physical.

And finally comes Eve. Enchanting, passionate, lively and always questioning as she struggles with God’s power, the whims of Adam and the problems of free will.

This compelling debut novel brings controversial insight and inspiring freshness to one of the oldest tales on earth, exploring questions of personal responsibility, justice and freedom.
