Description

The New York Times bestseller?from Margaret George, author of Mary, Called Magdalene

With her amazing ability to summon the voices of historical characters, Margaret George in Helen of Troy tells the story of the woman whose face ?launched a thousand ships.? Laden with doom, yet surprising in its moments of innocence and beauty, this is a beautifully told story of a legendary woman and her times. An exquisite page-turner with a cast of irresistible characters?Odysseus, Hector, Achilles, Priam, Clytemnestra, Agamemnon, as well as Helen and Paris themselves?and a wealth of material that reproduces the Age of Bronze in all its glory, Helen of Troy brings to life a war that we have all learned about but never before experienced.
