Meet enchanting Helen, who we first encounter as a spoiled teenager and whose passion for the handsome, reckless Paris leads to the betrayal of her husband, King Menelaus and the fall of the House of Troy. Powerful King Agamemnon with his terrifyingly ambitious wife Klytemnestra and his soothsaying mistress Kassandra. Odysseus, doomed to wander the Aegean for twenty long years; brave Achilles, who is haunted by the mad shade of his mother; the heroes Hektor and Ajax and many more.From the Publisher:
This novel is Colleen McCullough's retelling of the tragic and terrible saga of the Trojan war, a 3000-year-old tale of enduring love, abiding hate, vengeance, betrayal, honour and sacrifice.
