From the author of the twenty-five-million-copy bestseller The Shack comes a captivating new novel destined to be one of the most talked-about books of the decade.
Eve is a bold, unprecedented exploration of the Creation narrative, true to the original texts and centuries of scholarship—yet with breathtaking discoveries that challenge traditional beliefs about who we are and how we’re made. Eve opens a refreshing conversation about the equality of men and women within the context of our beginnings, helping us see each other as our Creator does—complete, unique, and not constrained by cultural rules or limitations.
When a shipping container washes ashore on an island between our world and the next, John the Collector finds a young woman inside—broken, frozen, and barely alive. With the aid of Healers and Scholars, John oversees her recovery and soon discovers that her genetic code connects her to every known race. No one would guess what her survival will mean…
No one but Eve, Mother of the Living, who calls her “daughter” and invites her to witness the truth about her own story—indeed, the truth about us all.
As The Shack awakened readers to a personal, non-religious understanding of God, Eve will free us from faulty interpretations that have corrupted human relationships since the Garden of Eden.
Thoroughly researched and exquisitely written, Eve is a masterpiece that will inspire readers for generations to come.
Young (The Shack) offers another mind-bending, challenging novel that will have readers scratching their heads and examining their hearts. This exploration of humankind's "turning" from God offers a unique look at the events of the Garden of Eden as seen by Lilly Fields, the Witness who washed up on the shore of an ethereal place and is cared for by John in the Refuge and island located between our world and the next. Lilly's life reflects our own she feels unsure of her place on Earth, and unworthy of God's love. Lilly meets Eve, Mother of the Living, in her dreams. In phantasmagoric scenes she makes her spiritual progression. She is wounded by a mysterious evil that breaches the Refuge, protected by the Guardian Han-el, witnesses Creation, and eventually finds herself in Adonai's lap where she finally accepts his love and learns to trust completely. The novel is sometimes confusing due to Young's flexible use of time and space, but often the writing is stunningly beautiful, offering an evocative, challenging look at our view of God and the Creation narrative . Young's latest will certainly pique the interest of established fans as well as generate controversy.

Completely made me rethink what I thought I knew about creation and God!
