Description

A gorgeous retelling of the Trojan War from the perspectives of the many women involved in its causes and consequences-for fans of Madeline Miller. This is the women's war, just as much as it is the men's. They have waited long enough for their turn ... This was never the story of one woman, or two. It was the story of them all ... In the middle of the night, a woman wakes to find her beloved city engulfed in flames. Ten seemingly endless years of conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans are over. Troy has fallen. From the Trojan women whose fates now lie in the hands of the Greeks, to the Amazon princess who fought Achilles on their behalf, to Penelope awaiting the return of Odysseus, to the three goddesses whose feud started it all, these are the stories of the women whose lives, loves, and rivalries were forever altered by this long and tragic war. A woman's epic, powerfully imbued with new life, A Thousand Ships puts the women, girls and goddesses at the center of the Western world's great tale ever told.
