Review: Beauty

User Review  - Cecilia Rodriguez - Goodreads

Narrated first by Alix, then by Lee, the plot examines what made the ancient Greek myth of Eros and Psyche such an iconic and archetypical story. Wilson explains in her introduction, that love does not obscure our vision, it clarifies it so we can see what is truly important. Read full review

Review: Beauty

User Review  - Elizabeth - Goodreads

Love this book and loved the 1998 TV movie (With Janine Turner & Jamey Sheridan), but the ending? A bit disappointing, but I admit it was still tender and sweet. Oh well! Still a favorite. Read full review
