About this title

Synopsis:

From the internationally acclaimed author of The Preservationist comes a provocative retelling of the story of Eve and Adam, Abel and Cain---a novel of temptation and murder, of exile and loss.
 
Once expelled from the Garden, Eve and Adam have to find their way past recriminations and bitterness to construct a new life together in a harsh land. But the challenges are many for the world's first family. Among their children are Cain and Abel, and soon the adults must discover how to be parents to one son who is everything they could hope for and another who is sullen, difficult, and rife with insecurities and jealousies. In the background, always, is the incomprehensibility of God's motives as He watches over their faltering attempts to build a life. In Fallen, David Maine has drawn a convincing, wryly observant, and enthralling portrait of a family---one driven (and riven) by passions, jealousies, irrationality, and love. The result is an intimate, in-depth story of brothers, a husband, and a wife---people whose struggles are both completely familiar and yet utterly original.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for David Maine and The Preservationist

“Brilliant...Think Life of Pi thousands of years earlier with a much larger cast of characters.”---Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Part domestic drama, part supernatural thriller, Maine’s unsettling retelling of Noah and the ark feels as realistic and suspenseful...as any modern tale.”---TimeOut New York

“Envisions the events in Noe’s life with awe and realism, and with a voice that is clear, distinct, and (remarkably, under the circumstances) dry...An elegant, inventive book, and in no way a cynical one.”---The New York Times

“Smart, engaging...Maine gives readers a pertinent, wittily real, and unexpectedly moving portrait of simple faith, flawed humanity, familial infighting, and nagging doubt.”---O magazine

“We can reencounter the hoary Old Testament icon afresh as a sensual, fallible human being and really appreciate his greatness and his sacrifice.”---Time

“Maine’s writing is pithy and smart, and his characters have convincing voices, reverent and irreverent, humorously dry and compassionate.”---New York Post

“Outstanding...A treat both for believers and for those who consider themselves devout only when it comes to discovering good books...A great story, told remarkably well.”
---BookPage
