Persephone's Torch

A Novel in Three Acts

Authored by Freder
Edition: First Print Edition

A World of Mystery and Dreams...
A Journey of Transformations...

1939: travel with an unusual theatrical company through a painted landscape of desire and dreams. Fantasy is their specialty and they have mastered the art - is the newest member of their extended family being carried to new heights by his yearning, or is he the victim of his own delusion? One by one you will come to know each member of the company, unlocking their colorful lives, learning their sometimes dark secrets. In this fateful last season of the company's life, who will emerge with their hopes for the future intact?

**** "A tale that works on several levels at once, drawing the reader into the world of greasepaint and illusion... There is a sad tawdriness about the people here and their magic, yet one cannot help but admire the talent and fierce longing driving them. A wonderful and thought-provoking story to the very end." - Shannah Biondine,

***** "Superb storytelling... I give this book a standing 5-star ovation, for its excellent plot, description, and characterization. ...The story held my attention to the end, and left me wishing that it hadn't ended. An excellent read overall -- which is only made better if you have a theatre background." - Kara L. Wolf,
