The Sappho Romance (ebook)
The best-kept secret of antiquity — a vivid, mesmerising tale of rivalry, passion, power, loss and love… The truth behind the mystery of Sappho.
On an 'unsinkable' ship, caught in the eye of a mighty storm, somewhere off the coast of Lesvos, in ancient Greece, politics and passion collide. Through an act of the Gods, a young slave girl, Anactoria, is set free… and faces the seemingly insurmountable plight of making a new life for herself in a world owned and run wholly by men.
They said a slave could not surpass her master… They said a wife is the property of her husband… They said women had no place in a man's world... But were they wrong?
Bilitis, a young storyteller, contemporary and love rival of the legendary Sappho, tells their story — the awesome, epic tale of a slave, a wife and a daughter who chose to be masters of their own destiny and fight the brave fight for freedom and for true love.
If you enjoy Madeline Miller, Pat Barker, Samantha Shannon and you like a lesbian fiction twist... then this is a treat for you.
