The Book of Eve
A fictional version of the biblical scenario of Adam and Eve, in which Eve leaves the family shortly after their son Cain murders his brother Abel. She travels out in the world in search of their origin and of knowledge about their existence.
This is the first published novel by Marianne Fredriksson and the first book in her trilogy “The Children of Paradise”. It was later published in a collection volume with the same name, together with “The Book of Cain” (book two) and “The Saga of Norea” (book three).
