Product Description

Product Description

Hetaera—suspense in ancient Athens, is Book One of the Agathon’s Daughter Trilogy. Born a bastard and a slave, Hestia has a gift: the power to read people’s hearts. And yet, the secrets of her own heart remain a mystery. Hestia’s keen intellect makes her a match for any man. But even a literate slave has little control over destiny. Sold to a prominent statesman with sadistic tendencies, Hestia becomes his hetaera (consort). As her wealth and fame increase so does her despair. She dreams of freedom, but she faces enemies at every turn. When Hestia is accused of murder the mystery of her past unravels and fate takes another turn.

Format: Paperback
Classical Athen's during the time of Socrates, Pericles and Sophocles is enough of a plot line to gain my attention, throw in some murder suspense and philosophical debates and I'm all in! I was fortunate to enough to be picked by this author again, the last tale dealt with Classical Rome, and she's becoming one of my new favorite historical fiction authors!

Hetaera is a story about Hestia, a slave in the house of Agathon. Upon his deathbed she learns that she isn't just his slave, but also his daughter - born out of wedlock and during a mysterious ritual. This knowledge doesn't change her status as slave and she continues to work within the home until Agathon's wife decides to sell her. When sold she becomes the Hetaera (a courtesan or better known as a high class mistress) to the wealthiest man in town.

This is a theme well played within Ms. Tyrpak's story. She did a great job capturing the times and all the hardships that not only women went through but also slaves and the restrictions held by them. I'll admit I had a hard time putting the book down and finished it within one reading. Although the ending left me wanting more I cannot wait to see what happens in the next story! I hope I get the chance to keep reading this writer's work and being transported to a time I love.
