The Serpent Beguiled Eve (Novel)
A young married woman with two daughters deals with her husband’s infidelity and his struggle with homosexuality. She seeks spiritual counsel, but when her husband refuses to cooperate with spiritual leaders—other than on a surface level—she has to make the most important decision of her life.
For the author: This book is well written. You obviously have a strong grasp of the English language and vocabulary. I see that you have previously written another book. This one, “The Serpent Beguiled Eve,” always retains respect and reverence for the God of the Bible. And yet you have written about a difficult but contemporary issue: being married to a man who reveals he is gay, and trying to find him help and counseling although he refuses it. You kept my interest by hinting that things were not to be or were going to get worse, and this bit of mystery led to turning the page to learn, “What happens next?”
You do a good job presenting the spiritual truth that God is always with us, ever willing to forgive our sins and lukewarm living, and yet it is squarely on our shoulders to seek Him and to repent when necessary. The book mentions how the subtle serpent wants to beguile people. This is definitely a spiritual book, although it deals frankly with homosexuality. Nothing crosses the line of our acceptability level for this manuscript to receive our “Faith-Friendly” Seal, but it is not a topic some 12-year-olds and above would be interested in reading. Many others will want to, however: wives hurt by divorce and spouses of husbands who later come out as gay. Your pain and your daughter’s loneliness were well expressed. Your stand for what God says in His word about homosexuality is admirable. I trust this is a book that will help others. There are spiritual nuggets in it like, “Pray, or fall prey.” We are presenting our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12 plus, and five Doves, our best rating, to this book.
