Sophia Chrysanthis marries Obermann (the Schliemann character) and moves from Athens to Hisarlik, the site of Troy. Obermann is completely obsessed with his Homeric vision of Troy, and refuses to believe any archaeological evidence that contradicts his own vision. It is a compelling tale about obsession, and of reason versus belief. Enthralling, it's a sure-fire way of getting you to revisit Homer again, and take another look into the adventurous world of Victorian archaeology.
