    Always Eden: is another fine work by Mary Alice Mark. May spends a great deal of time keeping her independence, working on her education, keeping the powers that be happy so she can stay out of jail. She fights off the almost amorous advances of a Miami police sergeant. He is just a cop that has stock in childhood. Pastor Kind is a minister who isn't sure if he wants to grow up or not. Who are the heroes? Who are the villains? Is there anywhere I can be safe? May is getting older and her emancipation is growing near. When had it all gone? Where had all gone? Was I like the nameless woman God turned into a pillar of salt? This is in my opinion is a fitting and challenging work that will force you to enter into the minds of people and get serious about their problems. I can't recall when I read a book that brought its characters to life so vividly. Even the minor characters will stay with you long after you finish the book. This book reminds me how God can be seen through all our lives,... More > through all lives circumstances and how his plan is best. If you want a read that will make you think and have some introspection, I fully recommend Sarah Milbourn’s Mother and Always Eden< Less

    "Read This Book" This book is extremely important to read because it encourages the reader as an outsider, to become actively involved in questioning their perceptions. The main character questions “Who am I to decide I am not good enough to be?” Asking that not only of herself, but prominent social figures, police, clergy, and most importantly herself. Each of us takes life for granted, and then cloaks ourselves from the experience. Always Eden inspires us to define not only what our pain is, but also our joy. Only by accepting our own existence can we allow others to exist to us. Pointing out that only through definition can we understand each other, as words are what we have to communicate with. Here is our Eden, the book leaves the quest for us, are we going to allow it to be ‘this’ way? All the while the book reminds the reader that ‘this’ is the way we perceive it, and we can cause change, and always love. Just as we can always be changed, and always be loved.
