Given only a few words in Homer's Iliad, Briseis is nonetheless a pivotal figure in the epic; a Trojan queen, Briseis becomes captive of the Greek warrior, Achilles, and a pawn in his disagreement with his commander, Agamemnon. Nominated for the Costa Award and a finalist for the Women's Prize for Fiction, this innovative novel by the author of the Regeneration Trilogy brings Briseis to life. Her story pulls back the veil on the thousands of women who lived behind the scenes of the Greek army camp—concubines, nurses, the women who lay out the dead—as gods and mortals spar, and as a legendary war hurtles toward its inevitable conclusion.
