A nice read but not one of Lena Kennedy's best stories. Like many of her books, it was very well written, the character development was fantastic and I enjoyed reading about the lives of each person, however Eve's Apples had far too many coincidences and the story was a little too far fetched at times, because of this,I wouldn't rate it any higher.
