The Trojan War is usually seen as a men’s war, but there are many women and girls involved in the stories, and I wanted to write about them; hence my Girls of the Trojan War trilogy. Hence my Girls of Troy trilogy, beautifully published by Silver Wood Books of Bristol.
The Silver Handled Knife
Electra is looking forward to the return of her father Agamemnon from the war in Troy. However, as soon as he arrives, he is brutally murdered by his wife Clytemnestra and her lover. Electra and her brother Orestes plan revenge.
‘Thomas's style is to absorb us in the period and yet Electra still feels like someone we know and understand today’ Dawn Finch - Awfully Big Reviews
What must it have been like to be the daughter of the beautiful and infamous Helen of Troy? After Helen elopes with Paris, Hermione is sent to stay with her uncle Agamemnon and her aunt Clytemnestra in Mycenae. On her journey there she meets Pyrrhus, son of the great Achilles, a golden haired boy with a cheeky grin. Agamemnon and Menelaus plan to invade Troy, seize back Helen and take Troy’s gold. But before that can happen, there will be a terrible event in the family.
