Adam & Eve by Sena Jeter Naslund

In Adam & Eve, Lucy Bergmann watches her husband die beneath a falling piano. Hours before he died, he had given her a memory stick that held irrefutable evidence of extraterrestrial life. Lucy wears the memory stick around her neck like a talisman. She attends a conference in Egypt about her husband's work, when she's asked to smuggle an ancient codex out of the country. The information on the codex would undermine the religious underpinnings of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and a group of fundamentalists are determined to destroy it at all costs. While fleeing Egypt, Lucy's plane crashes in an isolated and lush area of Iraq. She's rescued and nursed back to health by Adam, an American soldier who has lost his grip on reality. She becomes Eve to his Adam, reveling in their private Eden, until the violence of the real world finds them again. Sena Jeter Naslund's novel has received mostly positive reviews with saying, "Throw in a nefarious fundamentalist organization called Perpetuity determined to get their hands on the memory stick and the codex, desperate chases through caves of southern France, grand ideas and beliefs about the universe and humanity's place in it, and you begin to have an idea of the scope of this strangely compelling, well-crafted, truly original novel."
