Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Angela Hunt Returns to Biblical Fiction.
An ambitious tyrant threatens genocide against the Jews in ancient Persia, so an inexperienced 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 best-selling author Angela Hunt's return to biblical fiction. In each novel she explores an example of a Hebrew Old Testament woman - a woman whose physical beauty influences those around her and can change the course of history.

Excellent retelling.

This was a fantastic story based on the biblical story of Esther of Susa. I have read several books on her and love the movie One Night with the King but this goes more deeply into the politics behind the story as well. Really loved it. Kevin Free's narration was perfect as always.

Loved it!!

Suspenseful, loved hearing the story unfold. The narration was great. Even though I already knew the ending I couldn't wait to listen to the story unfold.
