Description

Bestselling novelist, Margaret George, here imagines the story of Helen of Sparta and Troy, one the most amazing female mythical characters, ancient or modern. A war, which lasted for 10 years, was fought over her and nearly all the stories of the heroic age were bound into her story - an measure of her capacity to galvanise men into action. Using her unique gift for research and recreation, Margaret George brings to life a Helen who was a tantalizing enigma from the very first, flesh and blood certainly, but also immortal, as the daughter of Zeus. Her beauty is so overwhelming and dangerous that, as a child, she is protected from seeing her reflection. Kings and princes compete for her hand in marriage, and she marries Menelaus of Sparta, but before marrying him, all her other suitors swear to help bring Helen back should she ever be abducted again. When she falls for Paris of Troy, it is assumed that he has taken her by force, when her actions are far more complex. The suitors are obliged to honor their oath and so the Trojan War begins - the most pivotal event in the history of ancient Greece ...and the tragedy of these individuals.
