Medea loves Jason from the moment she sets eyes on him; Jason, who believes that Medea is a powerful witch, is eager for her aid in securing the Golden Fleece. He swears to marry Medea and cherish her. Medea will do anything for her husband, even engineering a murder. But he later dismisses his sacred oath to her and divorces her.

This engrossing retelling of Medea’s story is filled with powerful ideas the author strongly depicts the life of a well-educated woman in a society that placed females on a level approximating that of slaves. Medea’s changes in fortune are viewed not as an isolated incident, but rather as a part of the demise of matriarchal rule and the victory of male-dominated religions over the worship of the Great Mother Goddess. And Medea’s blind love for Jason is as believable as it is tragic.
