Eve Adams is envious.
She has raised her family and watched her children become successful. She has also been a top drawer wife to George. But, in her heart of hearts, Eve always wanted something more than the life of a homemaker.
She watched as other women found freedom and fought their way from the secretary pool to the board room and knew she had what it took to do the same. So many regrets, at least about that portion of her life.
In The Eden Effect, Eve gets a second chance.
Long ago, George Adams inscribed their names on an apple tree in the middle of an orchard where they met and worked. Now he wants to find out if its still there. After a typical evening out, they stop by the long-since abandoned Culver's Apple Orchard and find the tree.
To their surprise, it is still standing. While all of the other trees in the orchard are barren, George and Eve's tree has a single apple growing from it. Eve can't resist plucking it from the branch. Despite George's warnings, she bites into the apple. It's perfect in form and taste. Eve convinces George to eat.
And that's all it takes to turn their world upside down.
Set it suburbia, The Eden Effect answers some of the questions we all ponder about the choices we've made in life. The grass is always greener, right? Eve Adams is about to find out...
