The many characters speak directly to the reader, presenting multiple perspectives of the same event.

Among the voices we hear is that of the mother grieving for her lost child, the daughter struggling for independence, the father who tramples on a mothers rights, and the lover who resorts to nefarious means to win his beloved. Each perspective is deeply rooted in the characters psychology and gender. Woven within their narratives are stories familiar to readers of Greek mythology. Against the backdrop of our own culture, which still diminishes the value of motherhood and marginalizes women of all ages, these voices speak to us through the centuries and offer new ways of seeing the world we inhabit.
