Journalist Paige Keller, while recovering at a remote resort from an overseas assignment, is drawn into a community dominated by a fundamentalist church, a family of real estate developers, and a group of environmentalists, all in conflict over control of the valley's future. She goes undercover to discover what lies beneath the church's rituals and sacred ceremonies, but the more she learns, the deeper the valley's mysteries and seductions become.
A New Eden is the second part of the acclaimed Idolatry saga, the story of a wealthy young heir and a devout Christian girl who find themselves at the heart of the age-old struggle for the soul of Western civilization.

No, this book had too much filler: full quoting of bible verses, long pastoral sermons delivered word for word, full retelling of biblical stories and parables, full stanzas of hymns sung. No real need to do so, when a simple explanation of those events happening would suffice. I feel like I just watched half of a movie.
Skye is my favorite. So far she is the one who has most to live for and to become, but she is surrounded by those who would crush her--and she does not realize that yet.
Mr. Field portrays with aplomb the many characters as individuals. The singing is quite a treat.
I enjoyed the opening scene in which Paige Keller, a journalist, awakes in idyllic surroundings that turn out to be very deceptive.
Genesis (Idolatry Book 1) is a must-read before A New Eden. I re-read it before reading A New Eden and I'm glad I did.
I only wish all the books were available NOW!
