Watch how Cal and Abra evolve in the coming chapters. Each is a portrait of someone for whom full knowledge—and choice, timshel—are the path to wholeness. Their struggles are the true and vital struggles in each of us, and in East of Eden.

Summer is waning, and we are coming to the close of this novel...but there is still so much to discuss! Keep reading—and let me know what you think!
