Helen of Troy
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Acclaimed author Margaret George tells the story of the legendary Greek woman whose face "launched a thousand ships" in this New York Times bestseller.
The Trojan War, fought nearly twelve hundred years before the birth of Christ, and recounted in Homer's Iliad, continues to haunt us because of its origins: one woman's beauty, a visiting prince's passion, and a love that ended in tragedy.
Laden with doom, yet surprising in its moments of innocence and beauty, Helen of Troy is an exquisite page-turner with a cast of irresistible, legendary characters—Odysseus, Hector, Achilles, Menelaus, Priam, Clytemnestra, Agamemnon, as well as Helen and Paris themselves. With a wealth of material that reproduces the Age of Bronze in all its glory, it brings to life a war that we have all learned about but never before experienced.

Helen of Troy
Wow! A long book but enjoyed every page. I feel like I just returned from a long journey. Thank you Margaret George for another fabulous book. I can't wait for the next one.
Wonderful but long
Margaret George is an amazing writer but sometimes I get really frustrated with the length of her books. While I was engrossed in this story, it was way too long.
