From Back Cover: Madelene Burden is a modern-day sleeping beauty drowsing gently in an alcoholic stupor, buth the prince whoe kiss brings ber back to life is not tall, dark and handsome...He's a short, dark, 300 pound ape named Erasmus.

That is only the story in a nutshell, it is much more than the obvious. It is about humanity and understanding that there are things much greater than ourselves that our beyond our control and understanding. A very absorbing read.

An ape's sophisticated intelligence draws Madeline. But compassion turns to passion in an unique story unlike anything you have ever read before.
