Jennifer Saint, author of Ariadne with Donna Freed

Ariadne and her sister Phaedra were pivotal footnotes in the heroic stories of men with the exception of the letters Ovid wrote in their name. It was these passionate but powerless voices that sparked Jennifer Saint’s debut novel Ariadne. Ariadne is a vibrant retelling and imagining of their stories as well as a story of sisters, growing up in the shadow of their brother, the Minotaur – himself born of their father’s terrible pride and their mother’s maddened shame. 

This is a beautiful exploration of a glittering world created and inhabited by gods who have all the attributes of man but none of the consequences, and how two young women, princesses of Crete, granddaughters of the sun god Helios, navigate in their wake.
