Review of The Dark Wife

The Dark WifeThe Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Dark Wife is a well written tender retelling of the mythological story of Persephone and Hades. It was incredible to see how Sarah Diemer has so intimately assimilated this myth. Such knowledge has enabled her to transform it into a whole new delicate love story, nevertheless maintaining the framework and detail.
The author has succeeded in narrating from a woman's point of view, dissolving male chauvinism that is so rampant in mythology, in a pot of women's innate power and subtly passing the message that the choice is always ours to make.
From now onwards the Autumn Equinox will never be the same for me.
