Synopsis

A GUARDIAN BEST BOOK OF THE 21ST CENTURY


'Chilling, powerful, audacious' The Times
'Magnificent. You are in the hands of a writer at the height of her powers' Evening Standard

There was a woman at the heart of the Trojan War whose voice has been silent - until now. Discover the greatest Greek myth of all - retold by the witness that history forgot . . .

Briseis was a queen until her city was destroyed. Now she is a slave to the man who butchered her husband and brothers. Trapped in a world defined by men, can she survive to become the author of her own story?

PERFECT FOR FANS OF MADELINE MILLER'S CIRCE AND THE SONG OF ACHILLES.

*Shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction and the Costa Novel Award*

Pat Barker continues her extraordinary retelling of one of our greatest myths in The Women of Troy, available to pre-order now.
