Glory and the Lightning

(1974)
A novel by

 
 
Author's most extraordinary heroine, a woman fighting for her right to be fully human in the "man's world" of ancient Greece: Aspasia was born to danger; before her birth, her father had announced his intention of abandoning the child to die, should it be a girl; hidden away and trained as a courtesan, Aspasia was educated in the arts of seduction in the exotic world of Persian harems, but when fate and her own sensuous beauty brought her to the bed of Pericles, ruler of Athens, Aspasia became not only his lover, but his confidante: a woman whose brilliance placed her in the precarious center of Athenian life at the height of the glory that was Greece.
