Black Ships Before Troy - part I

Read pages 1-39 of Black Ships Before Troy and answer the following question by Friday, December 2nd.  Respond to my question using evidence from the novel first, and then respond to at least one other person's commentary.  The goal is to develop a thoughtful conversation among your classmates.
Question:  On page 27, the old men murmur among themselves that it would be a fine thing for Troy if Helen were to go back to her first lord and her own people.  Considering the events of the novel so far, from the "Golden Apple" to "The Women of Troy", is it best if Helen returns to her people? (Make sure to use evidence from the novel to support your answer.)
