Publisher's Summary

Ataxerxes, king of Persia, needed a wife. This powerful warrior lord picked the one girl who would have given anything to have been passed over - a Jewish scholar, Esther, from the back streets of his capital, Shushan.
To a king bored by the chattering of women wreathed in musky scents, this changeling was a breath of fresh air. But the new queen of Persia was lost in a world of protocol and soon lost her husband's favour. Esther's only hope to avert a holocaust was to risk her own life and go, uninvited, before a king who had already disposed of one unpopular wife.
