Stolen Hearts: The Love of Eros and Psyche Ryan Foley
In the time of myths and legends…
…Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of beauty, has grown jealous of a young girl named Psyche. She is envious of the praise being heaped upon the mortal girl for her splendour. The goddess decides to dispatch her mischievous son Eros, the god of love, to perform a nasty trick.
When the trick goes awry, Eros finds himself falling in love with Psyche. Unable to resist her allure, he whisks her away to a palace in the sky. Wanting Psyche to fall in love with him for who he is and not for his name or looks, Eros hides his true identity from her and forbids her to see him in the light.
Persuaded by her two jealous sisters, Psyche plots a way to see him by lamplight. Her plan backfires and, feeling spurned and betrayed, Eros abandons her. Not wanting to live with anyone but Eros, Psyche sets out on a quest to regain the trust of her one true love.
This is a wonderful story of true love, redemption, and the conquering of impossible odds during the golden age of mythology.
