Synopsis: Told from the compelling point of view of Psyche herself, here is the intensely romantic story of a mortal princess, Psyche, and the god who loves her. Psyche is so beautiful that Cupid's mother, Venus, becomes jealous. She commands her son to inflame Psyche with love for a monster. Instead, Cupid falls instantly in love with Psyche, and he spirits her away to a magical fortress. But Psyche and Cupid will be tested further. Their love will take them to the underworld and back before the reader reaches the satisfyingly triumphant conclusion.

Review: Doris Orgel revitalizes the tale of Cupid and Psyche as a charming coming-of-age story, told mainly in the first person by 16-year-old Psyche. Writing for preteens and young adolescents, Ms. Orgel describes with honesty, grace, and diplomacy Psyche's experience of love and marriage to Venus' own son Cupid. Through the supernatural ordeals Psyche encounters as penance and education for her inability to remain innocent to her husband's identity, the depth of a young woman's heart is revealed.
