HERE'S WHAT'S COMING UP:
What is it like to be the daughter of the most beautiful woman in the world?
Hermione knows....Her mother is Helen of Troy, the famed beauty of Greek myth. Helen is not only beautiful but impulsive, and when she falls in love with charming Prince Paris, she runs off with him to Troy, abandoning her distraught daughter. Determined to reclaim their enchanting queen, the Greek army sails for Troy. Hermione stows away in one of the thousand ships in the fleet and witnesses the start of the legendary Trojan War.
In the rough Greek encampment outside the walls of Troy, Hermione's life is far from that of a pampered princess. She desperately wishes for the gods to intervene and end the brutal war--and to bring her love. Will she end up with the handsome Orestes, or with the formidable Pyrrhus, son of Achilles? And will she ever forgive her mother for bringing such chaos to her life and the lives of so many others?
From a 16-year-old reviewer, Olivia: "This is a story of deception, love, lust, and death. Filled with imperfect gods and shady characters, it was a well written novel and an interesting plot."
And this from BooksForKidsBlog: "Meyer, the queen of queen fiction, has a talent for telling a compelling personal love story, while taking the reader deeply into early Hellenic history in which the story is set."
Just call me Queen Carolyn.....
