The coming-of-age story of an ancient Greek woman who discovers the joy of being herself
As a young woman in ancient Greece, Myrto is doubly cursed to have been born a mortal and a female. When her father dies leaving no dowry for her to marry, Myrto's brother decides to give her to his former teacher, Socrates, as a second wife. Spending much of her time away from her new home in an attempt to avoid Socrates' cruel, first wife, Myrto soon strikes up an intellectual friendship with Plato. Although she wants nothing more than a friend, he has designs on more. Now Myrto must discover where she belongs in this quickly changing world and decide if she will accept the lot she has been given by her family, succumb to romantic love, or pave the way for women of the future to live better and less subjugated lives.
