Here is a literary novel that challenges the assumptions on love; and with Greek gods, a pianist, an artist, classical and jazz music, all together in the backdrop of the 1920s. It’s a coming of age story that touches more than just love but the reality of life, social class, dreams, and choices we make.
Eris, the goddess of chaos and discord always savors every moment to wreak havoc in the mortal realm. Then one day, confronted by Eros, the god of love (aka. cupid), on the argument that love conquers all, Eris tries to prove him otherwise by seducing a young aspiring pianist with her beauty and mischievous ways. But this ultimately fails.
Henry Leon, a classical composer by day but aspiring jazz pianist by night, never had that much success with women. It was not until meeting the sweet and mysterious Francine Daye that his life changed forever among his shy and awkward demeanor.
After realizing that Henry only needed guidance in the ways of love, the goddess makes a wager with the god of love. A wager to prove she could make people fall in love with her abilities. And if she succeeds, she would prove cupid wrong and gain his powerful device called the Ticking Heart. A device that would unlock love’s true potential and be used in her works of chaos. Now with her pride in line, and a desire to play matchmaker, Eris is about to embark on a path she thinks she has it all figured out.
