The Lost Sisterhoodtells the story of Diana, an aspiring young- but somewhat aimless-professor at Oxford. Her fascination with the history of the Amazons, the legendary warrior women of ancient Greece, is deeply connected with her own family''s history. When Diana is invited to consult on an archaeological excavation, she quickly realizes that here, finally, may be the proof that the Amazons were real.
The "true" history of the Amazons is threaded through the modern-day hunt Diana embarks upon with her mysterious employer. This remote backstory focuses on a group of women and more specifically on two sisters, whose fight to survive takes us through ancient Greece and to Troy, where the novel reinvents our perspective on the famous Trojan War.
