Described as "high fantasy" and an "accessible way to read Greek mythology," the Springfield-Green County Library’s One Read title for 2019 is the mythological fiction novel Circe by Madeline Miller. The characters in Greek mythology, and Circe, in particular, are relevant today because they have the same joys and struggles – even dysfunctional families.

The New York Times calls it "A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story." See why "Circe" is called "a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world."
