Booker-winning novelist Pat Barker imagines the untold story of the ladies on the heart of history’s greatest epic

‘Magnificent… You’re within the hands of a author on the height of her powers’ Evening Standard

‘Chilling, powerful, audacious… A searing twist on The Iliad. Amid the latest slew of rewritings of the great Greek myths and classics, Barker’s stands out for its forcefulness of purpose and earthy compassion’ The Times

‘A stunning return to form’ Observer

There was once a woman on the heart of the Trojan war whose voice has been silent – till now…

Briseis was once a queen until her city was once destroyed. Now she is slave to Achilles, the man who butchered her husband and brothers. Trapped in a world defined by men, can she live to tell the tale to turn into the creator of her own story?

Discover the greatest Greek myth of all – retold by the witness history forgot.
