Eve, banished from Eden gives birth to Cain and Abel then watches in horror as one brother learns to hate the other. Pharaoh's daughter, unable to bear children, saves Moses from the Nile and raises him as her son, only to lose him when he discovers the truth about his identity. And Claudia Procula, the wife of Pontius Pilate, faces her own capacity for rage as well as her husband's panic and stubborness when he ignores the warning she sends just before he condemns a man to death . . .
R. M. Lamming reaches through the dust of centuries with a strong and extraordinary lens. Told with uncompromising honesty - sometimes raw, sometimes anguished, sometimes tender - As In Eden is an epic yet immensely intimate novel, an unforgettable account of the search for inner meaning in the light of extreme circumstances.
