Raimon writes stories for the radio and lives with his brother Blai, who is crushed after a childhood accident in the forest and who now lives a simple life as an employee in a workshop. One day Rai receives a strange job: an older woman who always listens to his stories, Cèlia, wants to hire him to write her biography: “I could never imagine your stories would describe my life so well.”
Her story will grow, somewhere between fiction and memory. She tells him to rewrite everything she lived and he tries to figure out what is hidden behind that innocent offer.
The Eve is a captivating novel that brings together the best and worst of humankind. It is a story about the infinite power of love, the value of our memories, and the life we choose to lead to survive our past.
