Return of The Hero
by Jeffrey Peter Clarke
The war with Troy was over - let the ordeals begin!
Troy lay in burning ruins, her proud king Priam and his court slain. The Greek fleet under Agamemnon, king of great Mycenae, sailed for home burdened with loot, the prize of ten year’s hardship and siege before the city walls. A storm struck but its passing found the ships of his ally, Odysseus, king of Ithaca had vanished.
Ten years pass and Odysseus’ wife Penelope, beset by ruthless suitors intent upon seizing his kingdom, insists her husband will return. The suitors are closing in. Some plan to destroy Telemachus, Penelope’s son of twenty years.
Telemachus sets sail to discover the fate of his father, meets great danger on land, finds romance, faces conflict at sea but what has he learned of Odysseus?
But if they meet, what wonderful, what bizarre and cruel tales will Odysseus relate to account for those missing years? How is his kingdom to be regained in the face of such menacing odds? There has to be bloodshed but even that may not be the end.
