Her name was Lilith, daughter of night. This is a fantasy, a tale of adventure with a woman as the great explorer, a story of love, loss, and questing. Beautifully and simply written, it weaves together several complex strands: the drama of Adam and his first wife, Lilith, and his second wife Eve; the legend of the White Goddess who came to Africa from the moon; the myth of alien visitors from advanced planets; and the story of three worlds - one ruled by logic, the second by feeling, the third, our own, containing elements of both. But the real charm of the book lies in its heroine, Lilith, the talented, bold, and creative woman -earth's first artist and adventurer - who breaks the bonds of her tribe's conformity. She is the "daughter of the night," the poet, seeker, and dreamer, whose eternal curiosity about the universe survives to inspire forever the sons and daughters of the more timid and conventional Adam and Eve.
