Lawyers are usually pretty good story tellers. My mother gave me a big book about myths to read when I was growing up and I’ve given a big book of myths to my kids. There are a lot of good stories in mythology.
She was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, the harvest goddess. She was garthering flowers when she was abducted by Pluto and taken to Hades. Persephone became queen of the underworld and the goddess who brings us Spring and vegetation.
