About the Book

Eve East and West of Eden is the story of a woman who was born in Iran but grew to adulthood through the cultures of Europe and the United States while never fully surrendering her Persian heritage. She became successful in business and has returned with her daughter to the Middle East in search of a wholeness which can embrace the best of each culture she has adopted.

In her search for authenticity as a woman, as a citizen of the world, as a daughter, as a mother, and as a soul mate to a spiritual partner, she generalizes her own experiences to lay it over the experience of the planet entering the Twenty-first century. In the Middle East she finds the rich soil for discovering spiritual healing and loving perspective, while never quite attaining the peace she, and all humankind, spends a lifetime pursuing.

There is much in her story to instruct readers about the contrast between Christianity and Islam, between the West and the Middle East, and between a chaotic and tragic past and the promise of the future. Among the patterns she weaves are the threads of hope for her daughter, and through her, hope for the children of the world who will inherit the next opportunity for planetary healing.

Vivian Emtiaz's book is a true inspiring story of a young woman's quest on behalf of herself, her daughter, and today's world. She was born into a world full of the challenges, conflicts, and hardships presented by the close proximity and competition of Mideastern and Western cultures and values. Throughout, she has been driven by a vision of a future in which her daughter and all those of her daughter's generation could have the opportunities and understandings of ways to integrate the west and Mideast cultures. Central to her story has been the guidance and teaching she has received from the reportedly non physical beings that communicate through the America-- And how she was saved many times by "spirit" "Mohammed (PBUH" and the Holy Spirit. She has sought to make her life a teaching story that might be useful to others.
