From the Back Cover:
The novel that has become a cherished classic of contemporary literature; a glowing celebration of life’s possibilities at any age.
The Book of Eve was first published, with little fanfare, in 1973. Since then, millions of readers have met and been enthralled by Eva, the spunky 65-year-old who decides one day to walk out of her soul-destroying marriage and make it on her own. In a basement room in a downtown boarding house, she finds independence – and with a crazy, exuberant Hungarian half her age, she finds love.
This is the wonderfully moving, bittersweet portrait of a woman whose courage is equal to her determination to live life to the fullest. [Constance Beresford-Howe]
