First Chapter of Clytemnestra Book

I am busy at work on two projects right now — Book 2 of the Antigone Series, called Fate — but also a more adult oriented novel about Clytemnestra. This is also based on ancient Greek myth — Clytemnestra is the sister of Helen of Troy and is best known for killing her husband, Agamemnon, on his return from the Trojan War. In this book, I explore her story and what brought her to that point. I don’t have a name for this book yet, though it is largely written and I’m working on editing it. I thought I’d share Chapter One with you (please remember: this is not the final version yet). I would love any feedback!
