Overview
In the timeless world of Greek Mythology, a young princess named Psyche longs to be loved for her inner beauty rather than for her outward appearance. When Cupid, the young God of Love, is sent on a mission by his domineering mother, Venus, to curse Psyche, he accidently falls in love with her instead. What follows is the suspenseful and romantic story of how these two lovers must overcome the opposition of the greatest powers of heaven and earth in order to find eternal happiness in each other's arms.
Description
Adapted from the original Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche, this full-length young adult novel retells the magical story of a beautiful princess who longs to be known for her inner beauty and the young God of Love who yearns to escape the smothering domination of his mother in order to finally mature into adulthood. When the vengeful and jealous Goddess Venus sends her son, Cupid, to curse Psyche, he accidently trips and sticks himself with his own enchanted arrows and falls in love with her instead. What follows is the suspenseful and romantic story of two young lovers who emerge from two separate realities to face the opposition of the most powerful forces of heaven and earth in order to be together. Ultimately, Psyche agrees to face three devious and brutal challenges proposed by the Goddess Venus in order to secure her freedom to love and to be loved by Cupid, the only person who ever took the time to learn to know her for kind heart and her indomitable spirit.
