Author Jean Hoeflingabout this book: They say you should write the book you always wanted to read. Even as a kid in Sunday school I wondered about the wife of Cain, that voiceless woman from early Genesis who bore at least one child to one the Bible's most notorious villains. Many years later, what I still like best about Cain's wife is that we know almost nothing about her. That mystery makes her interesting.

In the apocryphal Akliah of Gold in Havilah, I developed a complex yet normal human being who lived at crosshairs between earthly desires and the pull of higher spiritual realities, and who struggled to discover who she was apart from the bad guy she married. Akliah's journey takes her from childhood innocence at the luminous gates of Eden to the barren wastelands of Nod; from slavery in the reeking alleyways of the black stone city Cain built to glorify a dark angel, to the choice this daughter of Adam must make between the lie she lives to protect herself and the authentic person she wants to be. Discover who Cain's wife is, and how she is just like us.
