Book Description HTML

The Maiden's Odyssey is set in the 8th Century BCE. A young captive named Nerissa is transported from Asia Minor to the Greek island of Ithaca. Purchased by a member of the oligarchy, her master discovers Nerissa’s keen intelligence, and involves her in his plan to introduce democracy. When his fortunes turn suddenly, she’s brutalized by her new owner. Nerissa escapes, only to be recaptured and punished harshly. She seeks blind Homer's protection, but he insists on returning her. While leading Homer errantly, Nerissa recounts the ordeal of her family that led to her enslavement. As he struggles with the opening of his new epic The Odyssey, Homer becomes intrigued by Nerissa's tale. Their encounter sets off a chain of tragedy and triumph winding through the next ten years.
