A Thousand Ships is a retelling of the Trojan War (what has led to it, what has happened during the war and the aftermath of it), told from a female perspective. And not just the perspective of a single woman, but from all the women who were involved in the war, the trojan women, the goddesses, the fates and the greek women, whose lives have been changed by the war. Only one woman isn´t allowed to tell her story ... but I´m not going to tell you who that is.
This was such a great read. At times funny, at times devastating, this book makes the Trojan War and all it´s repercussions come to live. And I absolutely loved every single page of it.
