In Greek myth, Alcestis is known as the ideal good wife; she loved her husband so much that she died to save his life and was sent to the underworld in his place. In this poetic and vividly-imagined debut, Katharine Beutner gives voice to the woman behind the ideal, bringing to life the world of Mycenaean Greece, a world peopled by capricious gods, where royal women are confined to the palace grounds and passed as possessions from father to husband.

Would you be willing to try another one of Diane Havens’s performances?
I don't think I'd try another of Havens' performances. I didn't feel there were enough pauses to signify a new sentence, thought, etc. I also thought the addition of "end of chapter _" to be redundant. Obviously when a new chapter begins, the other would end.
