An ambitious tyrant threatens genocide against the Jews in ancient Persia, so an inexperienced beautiful young queen must take a stand for her people.

When Xerxes, king of Persia, issues a call for beautiful young women, Hadassah, a Jewish orphan living in Susa, is forcibly taken to the palace of the pagan ruler. After months of preparation, the girl known to the Persians as Esther wins the king's heart and a queen's crown. But because her situation is uncertain, she keeps her ethnic identity a secret until she learns that an evil and ambitious man has won the king's permission to exterminate all Jews--young and old, powerful and helpless. Purposely violating an ancient Persian law, she risks her life in order to save her people...and bind her husband's heart.

Esther marks bestselling author Angela Hunt's return to biblical fiction. In each novel she explores an example of a Hebrew Old Testament tob woman: a woman whose physical beauty influences those around her--and can change the course of history.

Esther retelling
5 stars By Joy, Jan 11 2017
I enjoyed this book because the story stayed close to the biblical facts so it was not confusing. The story was told from the view of Esther and one of the kings Eunuchs. I found it very interesting, a bit sad, very realistic and thrilling all throughout the book. It's about an ordinary, Jewish girl called Hadassah who gets captured and brought to the palace on the way to Jerusalem. She finds herself trapped in the palace doomed to be used by the king then cast to the concubines to be forgotten forever but things don't happen the way she thought it would.

This story is told through the eyes of Esther and the eunuch Hegai, which are entwined together to make a very good book. Angela Hunt stayed very close to the facts, which makes it even better.
