Adam and Eve. We think we know what happened. Now Adam breaks his silence. Oren’s arrogance and position have afforded him many acquaintances and no friends. He inherited the renowned scribal school in Susa from his father—an emotionally distant scholar.Adam has sought Oren out. He believes Oren has the skill to help untangle the story from his memory. A skeptical Oren promises his pen, but not his silence. At his home by the sea Adam speaks once and for all of what happened, unpacking the great burden of guilt and regret he carries. Oren comes to see all he and Adam share – lost love, estranged sons, memories that must be confronted. And a Maker who knows no distance. As Adam grows ill Oren rushes to capture the final details of the story, a story only he will now hold—the story of the origin of all mankind.
