Clytemnestra is one of the most well known heroins of the trojan war, but rarely do we get to see any story on her perspective.

"they are racing between the rows of olive and fig trees, their hair catching the leaves, their bare feet stepping on fallen fruit." This quote grounded me when reading because it is such a youthful moment that reminds you that Clytemnestra and Helen were just girls.

Casati does a perfect job at distinguishing Helen and Clytemnestra from one another early on and defines Clytemnestra's character.
