Description - Ithaka by Adele Geras
ITHAKA tells the story of the women left behind after the end of the Trojan War. While Odysseus is slowly making his way home, overcoming terrible obstacles sent by the gods, his wife Penelope does not know whether he s alive or dead. How long will she be able to withstand the pressure of the numerous suitors who seek her hand (and Ithaka) and will she remain as faithful as mythology states, or might she fall in love with one of them? The vivid colours of life on the abundant island of Ithaka are evoked with magic and warmth, as Penelope and those around her tell their own incredible stories. Interspersed with wonderful verse retellings of Odysseus adventures, this is a thrilling novel with a contemporary feel.
