Summary
  • "What if "a woman's point of view" were God's? As The Book of Heaven commences, Eve speaks about what is alleged to have happened in the Garden of Eden, a story she hardly recognizes. She tells her version of events, revealing that the constellations we are accustomed to seeing above conceal heavens with which we have yet to contend. In the four parts of the novel--The Book of Souraya, The Book of Savour, The Book of Rain, The Book of Sheba--and their accompanying proverbs, Eve accounts for four new zodiacs and teaches us how to view each and comprehend its centrality to women: a knife, a cauldron for cooking, a paradisiacal garden, lovers embracing. Each book keenly evokes the life of a woman newly freed from the old tales in which she was trapped: a metamorphosis of Sarah, Abraham's wife; a polytheistic cook; Job's wife; and the Queen of Sheba" --
  • An Eve who does not recognize her own biblical story shares her version of events in the Garden of Eden before imparting the alternate feminist stories of four women, including Abraham's wife Sarah, a polytheist cook, Job's wife, and the queen of Sheba
