Eve's Longing: The Infinite Possibilities in All Things
Eve's Longing: The Infinite Possibilities in All Things is the story of a modern fictional saint in the making. In the course of Eve's twin spiritual and physical journeys, Deborah McKay's moving yet unsentimental novel explores alarming real-life resolutions to universal complexities and offers instead of answers the seductive and dangerous experience of its captivating central character. Eve is a shockingly original character: at once a philosopher, an artist with a highly developed visual imagination, and a visionary mystic. Her longing, as the subtitle suggests, is for "The Infinite Possibilities in All Things." In the course of her journey, this longing, which is essentially spiritual and philosophical in origin, becomes for us immediately tangible, sensuous, and fully real.
