Pat Barker’s Regeneration Trilogy – climaxing with the Booker Prize-winning The Ghost Road of 1995 – pushed her to front rank of British historical novelists. Brilliantly fusing an almost unparalleled level of veracity with a profound understanding of story and allusion, almost single-handedly Barker elevated the concept of the historical novel to the literary. Subsequently, Barker has rounded on a number of other themes, including the exploration of morality and children in the uncompromising Border Crossing and the exceptional, pan-Second World War narrative cycle of Life Class, Toby’s Room and Noonday.
In the aftermath of the Trojan war, old feuds and new ambitions are brought into play in this mesmerising follow-up to the bestselling The Silence of the Girls.
The breathtaking, psychologically complex sequel to Barker’s bestselling The Women of Troy sees Cassandra, the captured daughter of the king of Troy, arrive in Mycenae, setting in motion a bloody train of events involving King Agamemnon, his wife Clytemnestra and daughter Electra.
