Love it! Love it, love it, love it, love it! Did I mention I love it? I adore Queen Esther and this book is one of of the best I've seen about her. The relationship between Esther and Ahasereus is very sweet and her little cousins (especially little Ben's playacting the king) are a cute detail that is unique to this book, from the others I've read. I love that this author gives Esther and Xerxes a connection before she enters the herem (sp?). Moore also presents a unique view of Haman that is very interesting. My mom borrowed the book from me and she really liked it too. Very good read for anyone interested in Queen Esther or a sweet love story that also has action. I'll say one more time: LOVE IT!!!!

This book is SO. SO. SO. GOOD!
You will LOVE Esther EVEN MORE!
We know Esther was a strong woman.
She had a love of her people.
She had a love for her King and husband.
She was a Jew...He was the most powerful man in all of the kingdom.
When the two meet he cannot think of anyone else.
Having already put one wife away Esther is afraid to tell him who she really is.
"Esther is torn between her desire to be with Xerxes and the knowledge that they will forever be divided by the secret of her Jewish heritage."
But when her people are threatened to be destroyed she risks her own life in pleading for their safety.
This book gives you greater understanding of what took place and how the events unfolded.
Heather brings in a personal feeling of what Esther might have done on a daily basis.
LOVED. LOVED. LOVED. IT.
