Andromakhe is a well written, hauntingly beautiful story. A must-read epic for all. (It would make a stupendous movie too.) Readers of Mary Renault and Marion Zimmer Bradley are certain to enjoy Andromakhe! Caryn Day-Suarez, President - POW! Toastmasters - Jacksonville, Host of The POW Show - Weekly on WJGR 1320 AM Kristina ODonnelly takes the immortal tale of Troy - gods, heroes, and battles, but gives us the womans take. The strong women that are victimized by the violence, yet survive and ultimately rise above it. For thousands of years, Hector and Andromache of the Iliad have symbolized the archetypical loving and loyal husband and wife.

Most novels about the Trojan War end with the Fall of Troy. But here, as we dwell in Andrombkhes life, we have an account that encompasses the main as well as pre and post-Iliad years. Love, hate, greed, war, intrigue, heroes and villains combine with authenticated geography/history, offering an intimate view into the Bronze Age. ODonnelly has done a great job taking the violent male-centered story of The Iliad and bringing it a female perspective.

Men get the glory, women do the suffering (men suffer too, of course, but its often their choice--women have fewer choices, and had fewer yet in those ancient days). Andromakhe is a powerful novel and the must-read story for 2006.
