A lush, seductive novel of the legendary beauty whose face ?launched a thousand ships? Daughter of a god, wife of a king, prize of antiquity?s bloodiest war, Helen of Troy has inspired artists for millennia. Now Margaret George, the highly acclaimed bestselling historical novelist, has turned her intelligent, perceptive eye to the myth that is Helen of Troy. Margaret George breathes new life into the great Homeric tale by having Helen narrate her own story.

While hardly more than a girl, Helen married the remote Spartan king Menelaus and bore him a daughter. By the age of twenty, the world?s most beautiful woman was resigned to a passionless marriage?until she encountered the handsome Trojan prince Paris.
