Eden West

By Pete Hautman

“Hautman sensitively and gracefully explores powerful ideas about faith. . . . Thought-provoking and quietly captivating.” — Booklist (starred review)

Twelve square miles of paradise make up Nodd, the land of the Grace. It is all seventeen-year-old Jacob knows. Beyond the fence lies the World, a wicked, terrible place, and when the Archangel Zerachiel descends from Heaven, only the Grace will be spared the horrors of the Apocalypse. But something rotten is taking hold in paradise. When Jacob meets Lynna, a girl from the ranch just across the fence, he is tempted to sample the forbidden Worldly pleasures—and his faith, his devotion, and his grip on reality will all be tested.

  • From the author of the National Book Award-winner Godless.
  • Religious/cult aspects are handled with sensitivity and encourage an open dialogue among readers.
  • A powerful portrayal of first-love jitters and discovering one's identity.
