Summary:

The New York Times bestseller from Margaret George, author of Mary, Called Magdalene and Elizabeth I

With her amazing ability to summon the voices of historical characters, Margaret George tells the story of the woman whose face "launched a thousand ships" in Helen of Troy. Laden with doom, yet surprising in its moments of innocence and beauty, this is a beautifully told story of a legendary woman and her times. An exquisite page-turner with a cast of irresistible characters--Odysseus, Hector, Achilles, Priam, Clytemnestra, Agamemnon, as well as Helen and Paris themselves--and a wealth of material that reproduces the Age of Bronze in all its glory, Helen of Troy brings to life a war that we have all learned about but never before experienced.

    This historical fiction was not my favorite, I did enjoy it but not as much as others I've listened to. It wandered around a bit too much for my taste but was a solid "3" if you like historical fiction.

    Loved this book one of the best I have listened to yet! Margaret George has out done her self again. She has given a real feeling to the legend of Helen. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story. The book was a very easy listen, I did not want to turn it off.
