Andromache’s Home Before Troy: Part I

In the Trojan War legends, the character Andromache came from Thebe, which is on the west coast of modern-day Turkey (a short distance across the Aegean Sea from the Greek island of Lesbos). “My” Andromache from my “Trojan Peace” novels wasn’t born in this area, but she lived there for years. I was fortunate enough to visit nearby Assos, Turkey back in 2011. From the turquoise-blue sea, to the rocky cliffs, to the olive and fig trees, to the winds off the water, it’s a beautiful place.
