by Charlotte Vale Allen
A beautiful, sensitive young girl falls in love with a brilliant
older man who is so prfoundly scarred both physically and emotionally
that he literally cannot face the light of day. Despite his
deep apprehensions, he allows her to enter his world of darkness,
where they communicate their love for each other through music.
Fearful of what he most craves, Erik inevertheless becomes convinced of
Marisa's love. He nurtures and tutors her as she matures from girl
to womanhood, while she, in turn, teaches him to trust and gradually
coaxes him into the light.
