Summary
Call me Eve. It's the name I call myself when I think back to that time when I was a young wife - so very young, so very hungry. I picked the fruit and ate and drank until I was drunk with freedom and covered in juice and guilt." In this frank, compelling and beautifully written memoir, Rochelle Siemienowicz provides an intimate portrait of the last days of an open marriage. Raised as devout Seventh-day Adventists, who believe that the end of the world is near and that premarital sex is a terrible sin, Eve and her husband marry young. Rebelling against their upbringing, and in an attempt to overcome problems in their relationship, they enter an agreement that has its own strict rules. But when Eve holidays alone in her hometown of Perth during a hot West Australian summer, she finds her body and heart floating free. Fallen is a true tale of sex, love, religion and getting married too young - and about what it feels like when you can't keep the promises you once sincerely made
