In Shakespeare's play, "Hamlet," the Lady Ophelia dies a tragic death. But what if she had lived? How might things have turned out differently? See the world at Elsinore Castle through Ophelia's eyes as she attempts to change history with her knowledge of herbs and medicines.

What would have happened if Hamlet's Ophelia hadn't died in the middle of the play? How would things have gone differently? What was her life like outside of the scope of Hamlet's tragedy? Seamlessly interwoven with the original play, this story traces Ophelia, if she had survived her fall into the river.

This first in a series of "If She Had Lived" stories, this story is easily accessible to everyone and especially to those who love Shakespeare.

Future stories will trace the lives of other female characters from fiction, history, opera, and myths.
