A Thousand Ships

A Novel

Bookseller Recommendation

If you enjoyed The Song of Achilles, then you’ll love A Thousand Ships.

“If you read The Iliad and The Odyssey more than the single time required in high school, if you've seen Troy in it's entirety with its Hollywood heartthrobs an embarrassingly number of times, if you've named a pet Hector or Patroclus, or if you love Madeline Miller's Song of Achilles, then this book is certainly for you. If none of that is true, but you appreciate creative narrative play or have an interest in the role of women in history, if you enjoy Greek mythology or read the entire Percy Jackson series with your kid, then this book is also for you. Well written, strong voices, and a unique style make this a delight.”

“With her trademark passion, wit, and fierce feminism, Natalie Haynes gives much-needed voice to the silenced women of the Trojan War.”—Madeline Miller, author of Circe

Shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction, a gorgeous retelling of the Trojan War from the perspectives of the many women involved in its causes and consequences—for fans of Madeline Miller.

This is the women’s war, just as much as it is the men’s. They have waited long enough for their turn . . .

This was never the story of one woman, or two. It was the story of them all . . .

In the middle of the night, a woman wakes to find her beloved city engulfed in flames. Ten seemingly endless years of conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans are over. Troy has fallen.

From the Trojan women whose fates now lie in the hands of the Greeks, to the Amazon princess who fought Achilles on their behalf, to Penelope awaiting the return of Odysseus, to the three goddesses whose feud started it all, these are the stories of the women whose lives, loves, and rivalries were forever altered by this long and tragic war. 

A woman’s epic, powerfully imbued with new life, A Thousand Ships puts the women, girls and goddesses at the center of the Western world’s great tale ever told.
