It’s not a myth. It exists. Find it.

Geologist Ross Kelly has it all: a lucrative career searching for oil across the world and a beautiful, brilliant wife, Lauren, pregnant with their fist child. But when Lauren, a Yale academic, deciphers the university’s mysterious Voynich manuscript, which has confounded experts for centuries, everything changes.

An attempt to steal her translation of the Voynich leaves Lauren and their unborn child hovering on the brink of death, and Ross in the depths of despair. Encounters with a sinister Vatican priest and then a mysterious nun convince Ross to seek the centuries-old manuscript, which chronicles the ill-fated discovery of a mythic fabulous garden deep in the jungles of the New World: an Eden so terrible and miraculous it rewrites the book of Genesis and defies all reason.

Although everyone tells him the story is surely an allegory, the possibility of the garden’s existence offers Ross the only hope of saving his wife and unborn child, and he decides to seek the garden out before it’s too late.
But he is not alone. Racing against time, against a lethal assassin, and a fanatical priest, Ross’s quest will lead him to a place that might challenge everything he ever thought about the source of life on earth.
