The rival Greek city states of Athens and Sparta have been fighting each other for two decades. The men go off to battle, leaving lonely wives and children at home and young women with little opportunity to find husbands. No peace is in sight until one woman comes up with a simple plan she knows will work.

“They succeed,” he said with a smile.
