A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework, and anything else I can think of.
Quite a tale here, of Penelope's side of things during her childhood and marriage to Odysseus. Very sly, very tongue in cheek, and the twelve maids! Oh my goodness. Not very long, just over a hundred or so pages, but worth it, especially if you've read Homer.
