The Sweet Girl book cover

Pythias, beloved daughter of philosopher Aristotle, is unlike any girl in ancient Greece. She’s educated, well-read and more intelligent and quick-witted than many men. But after her father’s death, will her gender condemn her to nothing more than a conventional life? Annabel Lyon’s use of a modern voice captivates in this follow-up to her debut novel, The Golden Mean, a Rogers Writers’ Trust Prize winner.
