Whichever is the case, hers is a privileged position, a woman who moves in a man's world, protected by the reputation of her philosopher father. Yet her entire life is set to change when Aristotle dies, leaving his daughter to discover that the world is a place not of logic but one of superstition, and that a girl can be preyed upon by gods and goddesses as much as by grown men and women...
