  THE CASSANDRA By Sharma Shields

  It’s difficult to imagine a myth riper for harvest than that of Cassandra, the tragic Greek figure who uttered prophecies no one believed. She was, to begin with, a woman, and that is what Sharma Shields, in her biting second novel, sinks her sharp teeth into the deepest.

  Our Cassandra is Mildred Groves, a woman in her early 20s who is aggravated by a dull life of caring for her irritable, controlling mother and exasperating people with her visions of maudlin future events. But it’s 1944, the sixth year of an endless global war, and opportunity explodes with the founding of the Hanford research center just three hours south of Mildred’s parochial Washington home.

  A fabulous typist, the eccentric “Mad Mildred” scores a choice secretarial position among the 40,000 eager Americans recruited to work at Hanford. Most of the outnumbered members of the Women’s Army Corps are tickled by the promise of “plenty of men to choose from,” and Mildred fancies herself a stylish, modern woman in the vein of her favorite actor, Susan Peters.

  Shields might have been imagining the 1945 film “Keep Your Powder Dry,” in which Peters, Lana Turner and Laraine Day play a trio of gumptious, lipsticked Wacs having a grand time making America proud during World War II. For a while that is indeed the novel’s tone. “Isn’t this a gas?” raves Beth, Mildred’s beautiful, magnetic new best friend.

  Familiarity with the original Cassandra is not required to appreciate this novel, although those who do know the ancient myth will admire Shields’s skillful tweaks (reminiscent of Jane Smiley’s successful reimagining of King Lear in “A Thousand Acres”). The book’s most visceral update is Mildred’s encounter with Hanford’s “good husband stock.” But nothing is more troubling or more brilliant than Mildred’s horrifying reaction to a trauma that implicates all of us so forcefully that it’s easy to believe Shields is the one blessed — or cursed — with visions of impending ruin.
