In A Thousand Ships, broadcaster and classicist Natalie Haynes retells the story of the Trojan War from an all-female perspective, for fans of Madeline Miller and Pat Barker.
This was never the story of one woman, or two. It was the story of them all....
In the middle of the night, a woman wakes to find her beloved city engulfed in flames. Ten seemingly endless years of conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans are over. Troy has fallen.
From the Trojan women whose fates now lie in the hands of the Greeks, to the Amazon princess who fought Achilles on their behalf, to Penelope awaiting the return of Odysseus, to the three goddesses whose feud started it all, these are the stories of the women embroiled in the legendary war.
Powerfully told from an all-female perspective, in A Thousand Ships Natalie Haynes puts the women, girls and goddesses at the centre of the story.
"A gripping feminist masterpiece." (Deborah Frances-White)

Unforgiving and powerful novel
This books shines a bright light on the often disregarded characters of these epic novels we heard, read, and tought about. It shows us a different perspective that is both refreshing, and tragic. I truly hope the ghosts of these women will find some semblence of rest, knowing there is someone who is doing her best giving them the justice and recognition they deserve
