Langholt has created an enjoyable, believable, and empathetic story of our beginnings, using the biblical story of creation as a springboard.

"First Family" is a wonderful, thought provoking realization of how life may well have been for Adam and Eve and their first two children, Cain and Abel. Obviously, anyone who has read the first several chapters of the book of Genesis knows what happens to Abel, but Alice Langholt builds a sense of suspense as the tragic event draws near.
The beauty of this book is in how it shows that even the first family struggled with issues we struggle with today, such as questioning if God is near us, cares for us or even exists at all. It is comforting, even from a fictionalized account, to think that even Adam and Eve had doubts, questions, as well as moments of strong, sure faith.
For those who are wondering, this book is more spiritual than religious. It tells the story without preaching or proselytizing. It's a lovely, beautiful piece of storytelling worth reading and sharing.
