This is the story of Penelope of Ithaca, famed wife of Odysseus, as it has never been told before.
Seventeen long years ago, the mighty King Odysseus set sail to war with Troy, taking every man of fighting age from Ithaca. None returned, leaving the women to run the Kingdom themselves.
Penelope barely knew womanhood when Odysseus took her for his wife and while he was alive, her position was secure. Now, many years on, speculation grows that her husband has gone to the underworld, and suitors are gathering like vultures to pick at the woman he left behind, clamouring to claim her.
The throne of Odysseus sits empty, unoccupied, as no one is worthy to claim it.
The scales of power begin to slowly tip and with such a shift, Penelope knows a civil war is on the cusp of erupting, yet through cunning, wit and trust perhaps she can maintain peace within her Kingdom.
The deities of Olympus are restless, watching to see what happens when Elektra arrives on the isle demanding to know the whereabouts of her murderous mother after discovering the body of her father, but Penelope can use this new found knowledge as leverage for not only herself, but her entire livelihood but will Penelope win at this game or will the gods?
