This is one of my most treasured books on my bookshelf. I have read it numerous times and its beauty just doesn't wear out. Several lines of its poetry are seared in my memory because they were just that profound and meaningful to the stage of life I was in. It's sad that we don't see this book around much anymore. The story is truly beautiful and the quiet lesson on faithfulness contained within is timeless. I quoted several lines of Calvin Miller's wisdom in my own book, and have many more in ...more

A very quick and engaging read recapturing the danger of hate and the emergence of sin. Miller retells the story of the garden of Eden using poetry, metaphor and a newly imagined cast of characters.

From the inside flap of the dust jacket:
"A story of fallen love, of impossible dreams and ancient longings, of frustrated ambition and a love so strong that it endures forever. The terse, often startling narrative of this book continues in the tradition of Miller's perennially popular "Singer" trilogy

Not as good as the Singer Trilogy, but still solid over-all.
