ABOUT BOOK: When an ambitious tyrant threatens genocide against the Jews, an inexperienced young queen must take a stand for her people.
MY REVIEW-I have read plenty of books out there about Esther. My younger sister loves the Biblical account and so any time I find a book about this great female heroine from the Bible, I try it out. This one I found to be strangely compelling and loved how the author portrayed Esther. I don't know about you but previously I always had the idea of her as a young woman, never as a child. I also just automatically thought she was imbued with extra spirituality and never had bitter feelings or worried about the worldly side of things. I think this book opened my eyes like none of the others have. We see Esther as a girl who grows up with ideals and dreams. Do they all come to pass? Not exactly in the way she might have thought they would but all in God's timing and plans. An excellent book from Angela Hunt and hopefully we get to see another from her about the great heroines in the Bible!
