Summary (From the publisher):

Leaving Eden brilliantly brings to life the watershed moment in our history when man--and woman--turned their backs on ancient laws in order to strike out in independence. Told from the point of view of Na'amah, Adam's daughter by his first wife, Lilith, she tells of the passing of the ancient Goddess and the birth of the new God.

When Lilith returns to her clan to reclaim Adam after a long absence, young Na'amah is thrilled to see her long-lost mother. However, Adam has his sights set on Eve for his new wife. The ancient law of the Great Mother commands that no man may take a second wife while the children from his first union are still alive. But Adam has heard the word of the new God, and is ready to take Eve and face the wrath of the Old Goddess.
