When Demeter's young daughter, Persephone, is kidnapped by the king of the underworld, the earth-goddess decrees that nothing will grow on Earth until her safe return. Geringer brings a modern sensibility to her interpretation of Hawthorne's adaptation of the Greek myth about the origins of the seasons.
