'Donna Tartt's The Secret History meets A.N. Wilson's Unguarded Hours in Rachel Mann's intoxicating first novel.' --Michael Arditti

'A vividly compelling story about the dangerous games that can weave themselves around faith seeking understanding.' --Rowan Williams

'TheGospel of Eve is insightful and revealing, it's also, at times good oldfashioned, slightly mischievous fun.' --Rev Kate Bottley

'Mann is an excellent observer and a remarkable storyteller ... I very much hope that this is not Mann’s last work of fiction. The Gospel of Eve is certainly a gripping read and an impressive extrapolation of both characters and setting.' -- Natalie K. Watson, The Church Times
