The great city of Troy is under siege as Greek heroes Achilles and Agamemnon wage bloody war over a stolen woman. In the Greek camp, another woman is watching and waiting- Briseis. She was a queen of this land until Achilles sacked her city and murdered her husband and sons. Briseis is just one among thousands of women backstage in this war and voiceless in history. Barker gives us the legend of The Iliad retold from the perspective of a woman- queen turned war prize, witness to history.
