Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Glad the story had a happy ending!

Marvellous incident, Beth, marvellously described. Can't help wishing there was more and that we know more about the strange young man. But it's also perfect just as it is.

Absolutely charming -- truly heartwarming. Thank you!

Wonderful.

Sometimes we are the one who is given the unexpected, sometimes we are the mysterious giver! I am reading a book about Puritans and witchcraft, and so that single long hair does sound... strange.
