Audible Editor Reviews

Edward Ferrie’s retelling of one of the most well-known of all Greek myths, in which the legendary ancient musician and poet Orpheus, still reeling from the sudden death of Eurydice, successfully implores Hades and Persephone, rulers of the underwood, to revive his beloved wife, but who tragically forgets to adhere to the caveat they impose upon her return to Earth.
Benjamin Soames’ inviting, genial tone and energetic performance infuses this 30-minute book with life, making it immensely enjoyable and palatable to all audiences.
