Persephone Bound is an epic story of survival that follows a young woman’s journey through three vivid realms: The Underworld — a college party that holds the painful memory of her experience of sexual assault; The Court – a bureaucratic hell-sphere; and The River (Styx) — an internal space where, queen-like, she builds a well-spring of courage and strength.
