An inspired re-imagining of the tale of Esther, a young Jewish woman thrust from a life of obscurity into a life of power, wealth, intrigue…and tender love. See the story of Esther in an entirely new way – with all the political intrigue and tension you remember, but told as a passionate and tender love story between a young man and woman. Misunderstood by many, King Ahasuerus was a powerful but lonely man. Esther’s beauty caught the eye of the young king but it was her spirit that captured his heart. Imagine anew the story of Esther, one of our faiths great heroines destined to play a key role in the history of Christianity.
A well-written and a beautiful story, the love between the young King and his wife, Esther, is tender and all consuming. I thoroughly enjoyed this book very much.
