Description

Told through the eyes of a young girl who is like a daughter to Penelope, wife of Odysseus, this follow-up to "Troy" captures the quiet strength and patience of a woman's enduring love for her husband and the ensuing chaos as Penelope is pressured to remarry.
Many years have passed since the end of the Trojan War, and Penelope is still waiting for her husband, Odysseus, to return home. The city of Ithaka is overrun with uncouth suitors from the surrounding islands who are vying to win Penelope's hand in marriage, thereby gaining control of the land. When a naked, half-drowned man washes up on the beach, everything changes. . . .
Told through the eyes of Klymene, a young girl who is like a daughter to Penelope--and who longs for more than friendship from the young prince Telemachus--"Ithaka "captures the quiet strength and patience of a woman's enduring love for her husband and the ensuing chaos that threatens all as Penelope is pressured to remarry.
