Daughters of Bronze

A Novel of Troy



In a sweeping epic, the most iconic moments of the Trojan War are told from the perspective of Andromache, Rhea, Helen, and Cassandra, driving A.D. Rhine’s retelling to its captivating conclusion, as the four fierce women and unlikely allies work together to save the city’s greatest hope: Hector and Andromache’s newborn son.

Song of great sorrow. Even greater love.

Lost between the timeless lines of Homer’s epic, the women of Troy finally stand to be counted. Their story is one you’ve never encountered, and it will change the fate of Troy forever.

Andromache has proven herself a capable leader, but can she maintain that hard-won status now that she is the mother to the city’s long-awaited heir? With enemies closing in, Andromache must bring together a divided city in time to make a final stand.

Rhea is a Trojan spy, but she never expected to find love in the enemy camp. When the final battle lines are drawn, Rhea must decide where her loyalties lie and how much she is willing to lose.

Helen is no longer the same broken woman first brought to Troy as a captive. Given a second chance at life, she must cast off her shroud of grief and use her healing gifts to save Troy’s greatest hope.

Cassandra has seen Troy’s fate. But she knows the truth is only as valuable as the person who tells it . . . and few in Troy value her. All that is about to change. One hero will rise, another will fall . . . and this time, Cassandra will have her say.

From the highest tower to the most humble alley, the bloody beaches to the dusty plain, Daughters of Bronze breathes life into the Troy of myth and history. It is an epic of a thousand invisible actions leading to a single moment, adding a refrain of unexpected light to the legend of Troy.
