Helen is kidnapped by Theseus, the ruler of Athens, because of her beauty, but through Theseus, Helen learns that her only value lies in her beauty and her only goal in life should be to be a good wife. Theseus tells Helen she must transform herself into exactly what her husband wants her to be, giving up her own identity in the process. Eventually Helen is given to Menelaus, brother to the great King Agamemnon, because he is the wealthiest and most powerful of her suitors. Helen has come to look at her beauty is a burden because it prevents her from being allowed to make her own decisions and choose the path of her own life, but Helen begins to appreciate her life with Menelaus because she realizes that he really does love her. Although, she falls in love with Paris of Troy which starts a war with her two suitors. This book is suspenseful when Helen was kidnapped by Theseus because I wasn’t sure if she was going to be okay, and you didn’t know if Theseus’s intentions were to marry her without his consent. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a teenager and who likes realistic fiction because it is a mature book, and it is nice to imagine if the story could happen.
