  As in Eden 27 May 2005  
Re-writing the stories of women from the Bible

Eve, Martha and Claudia Procula, wife of Pontius Pilate – these are three of the women in the Bible who have now been brought to life by award-winning author RM Lamming.

In her latest book, As in Eden, Lamming turns the spotlight on these women and gives their lives a new perspective.

Martha talks to Lamming about re-writing these ancient stories.
