A heartbreaking love story that explores the culture clashes of the Caucuses and Mideast set against the back drop of a revolution for Azerbaijani independence.
Note before beginning: I love C.S. Lewis. Much like the Chronicles of Narnia, this takes a familiar tale and twists it around into a Christian bent. In this case, the tale of Eros and Psyche. Except, however, this tale is told from the angle of Psyche's ugly, unloved sister. It opposes the myth in several ways .... Eros' castle is invisible, which is one of the largest changes, Orual wasn't jealous of Psyche and Eros, but was jealosu that Psyche loved someone other than her. It was a completely different nature of jealousy, one that makes you wonder about your own actions and behaviours, and the meaning of inner beauty and character. Even though Psyche isn't in the majority of the book, Orual and her stories are intertwined. But saying more would give away the ending.
