Sephy's Story by Julia Green

Sephy's has an idyllic life on the island of Sicily, she loves to pick flowers in the sun and have picnics with her mother Demeter, but this isn't to last. Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, wants the beautiful Sephy to be his wife, so he kidnaps her and takes her to his underground kingdom. Imprisoned in this place where the sun never shines, Sephy is too sad to even eat, until finally Pluto tempts her with a pomegranate. As she tastes some of its seeds, little does she realise Pluto has tricked her. Now she may never be free.
