Hadassah, a young, Jewish orphan, forced to enter the palace at Shushan, has had her world turned upside down by Ahasuerus, the despot King of Persia. Not only has Hegai, the custodian of women, changed her name, but everything about her life is now controlled by this eunuch. She must witness and experience the heathen excesses of the palace while awaiting her night with the king in his bedchamber.
“It is evident that the author knows scripture well but also relies on sound historical research to fully bring to life the culture and customs of the people. Couldn’t put this one down – An excellent read!”
Author comment: Esther Queen of Persia remains faithful to the Biblical text. This book, as with my other Biblical books, has a section at the back listing all Bible verses quoted in the book. Also, there is a listing of books consulted in the research.
