(From the publisher):
Love and honor can overcome the fiercest obstacles, as this spellbinding fairy tale shows us.
When and angry lion threatens him, a merchant makes a desperate promise that his youngest daughter will be called upon to fulfill. She must go to the lion's castle, although she has little hope that the creature will spare her life. But there, she finds kindness rather than danger, for the lion by day is a gentle young man by night—a prince who is under the spell of a wicked enchantress. The lady and the lion soon fall in love and marry.
Unlike its cousin "The Beauty and the Beast," however, this story has only just begun. Our lady's new husband is not yet safe from the enchantress. It will take all of the lady's strength and courage, through a quest of seven years, to rescue him.
