Heroine takes the women of Greek mythology into a new light. This book examines three myths with a different twist on each one. Take flight with Daphne in the wood, follow Persephone underground, and race with Helen to leave a crumbling Troy. Each uniquely woven story explores the myth through the women’s eyes. Instead of the traditional female footnote, these characters storm onto center stage. Heroes are believed to have a path which dominates their character and leads them to their happy ending. But does a similar path exist for women in myth? Heroine seeks to reveal this path by retelling these popular Greek myths. These female mythical characters follow along their own paths, mortal and goddess alike. Although the stories don’t change, the perspective makes all the difference.
