Apples and Eve
Part love story, part eulogy, and part practical guide to apple growing, Apples and Eve retells the Adam and Eve story in Genesis from Eve's perspective. Using the orchard as a metaphor for the care and maintenance of a long-term relationship, the story includes extensive information about apple cultivation, orchard management, and the many varieties of apples. Eve addresses Adam, God, Paradise Lost poet John Milton, and apple lovers everywhere, as she eats countless apples and reflects with a mixture of defiance, amusement, and repentance, on the loss of Paradise.
