OUT OF EDEN is a book about the fundamental nature of life: a story about men, a manual for women. In paradise, God created Eve to be a playmate for Adam. Cast out of her own Eden, Eve von Szentthamassy finds that life without a man is a life without essence. A journey into the very soul of what it means to be human, the pleasures and humiliations that we all experience, this book tells the story of a woman's rapturous relationships with men and her complex, often bittersweet liaisons with them. Eve's struggles and triumphs as a single parent, her determination to succeed in the face of adversity and her ultimate achievement of financial independence makes this story an inspiration. Eve's tale, set in exotic lands such as Brazil, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and the city of Toronto, unfolds as a passionate journey through life.
