Forever Loved Eve’s Story is exactly what it states it is- a creative retelling of the time Eve opened her eyes at her creation to the time she closes them at her death. The author writes in a very poetic matter, she does add scriptures but most of the story is what might have happened and what Eve may have been thinking.
The author splits up this small book into bite size chunks; I read it in less than an hour all told. The three main sections is Her Story, Eve’s Story, and Your Story with reflections on what was read. This was a creative, getting into if fictitiously the mind of Eve. Seeing the wonder of God, Adam, Eden, the animals, etc., the awful taste of the fruit, a different way of life, childbirth, and the author clearly tries to put Eve’s circumstances in front of our eyes.
This is not really my usual read but it was an interesting retelling even if I necessarily did not agree with all of it. I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Joanna
True or False? Eve spent time with God before meeting Adam.
True or False? Eve wasn’t called Eve until after the Fall.
Does the Bible even say?
Until recently, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you, even though I’ve been a Christian many years, and thought I knew the Bible story of Eve really well!
It was during hot, sticky, jet-lagged nights, about four years ago, on holiday overseas, that God started giving me new and wonderful insight into Eve’s life. Words literally started pouring through my head: the story of Eve, but not as I’d heard it before!
I’d always had negative connotations of Eve – the first woman to be tempted, the first to sin. But the story God revealed to me during my sleepless nights was one of preciousness and beauty. It was the story of Father and daughter, of God’s incredible love for Eve, and His equally wondrous love for me.
As Eve’s story unfolded over several nights, I wrote it down; and God gave me a book I did not ask for (but am forever grateful for): Forever Loved: Eve’s Story.
These new insights into Eve’s story have been life-changing. God has brought me deeper into His love than I could ever have imagined. (In the introduction of ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’ I share something of the deep hurt and insecurity I experienced growing up – including the time I got into BIG trouble with my teacher – my cry to know God as Father, and how God’s love has brought healing and freedom.)
It’s my prayer that ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’ touches the lives of women around the world, that women may come into deeper experience of God as Father, and know just how beautiful and precious they are to Him. So, back to the True/False questions at the beginning of this post! What do you think?
I’d love to share with you what I’ve discovered by giving you a free copy of a devotional I’ve written called ‘Treasures Hidden in the Story of Eve’. This devotional explores some of the amazing truths God’s shown me about Eve, and the wonderful implications for us as women today (and includes extracts from ‘Forever Loved: Eve’s Story’). Download the devotional for free here.
I pray God touches you as deeply as He has me, as you explore the Bible story of Eve afresh. May you encounter the love of Father God as never before. Joanna xx
