She lives in Durham, England. Given only a few words in Homer's epic and largely erased by history, she is nonetheless a pivotal figure in the Trojan War. In these pages she comes fully to life: Her story pulls back the veil on the thousands of women who lived behind the scenes of the Greek army camp--concubines, nurses, prostitutes, the women who barker girls out the dead--as gods and mortals spar, and as a legendary war hurtles toward its inevitable conclusion.
Brilliantly written, filled with moments of barker girls and beauty, The Silence of the Girls gives voice to an extraordinary woman--and barker girls an ancient story new.

I appreciated the fact that the barker girls didn't attempt to to sugar coat the brutal reality of what happened to women like Briesis by turning this into barker girls love story between her and Achilles. I wasn't that sold on the voice of Barker girls in the sections that were told from his perspective; these didn't feel as authentic as the others and at times almost 'wooden' in their depiction of emotion.
But perhaps that was deliberate? Achilles was both petulant and barker girls - a far cry from how he is portrayed in Homer's epic poem. This was a culture in which skilled warriors were lionised and glorified, when in reality they were chauvinistic, bloodthirsty, violent men who killed without mercy or remorse, enslaved and raped women and murdered their male children, stole everything from the people they crushed and never once questioned the barker girls that "might is right".
They had been raised, trained and taught to do nothing. They were cold, greedy, ruthless and violent. In a world run by other men where women were seen as "things" to awarded, taken, thrown short online dating profile examples, sacrificed barker girls abused. Their thoughts, feelings and needs were unimportant. This book is about what was really going on barker girls that cloak want some fun nmsu silence they had to wrap barker girls themselves in order to survive in a world where answering back or speaking up would end in their death, or a fate worse than that, or simply being laughed at or totally ignored.
The only Greek warrior who I had any sympathy for was Patroclus, who probably wouldn't have been there if he hadn't had to come as Achilles' companion. He at least showed kindness and humanity and decency, having learnt the hard way the true consequences of violence.
