I really liked this book and I couldn't put it down! The author did a very good job of writing from Esther's experiences with the King. If you enjoy reading the story of Esther in the Bible you will enjoy this book!
This book has captivating descriptions and details that pull you into the story and really help to flesh out the intriguing story of Queen Esther. It is one of the best books I've read in a long time (and I read alot!). The sequel "Hadassah Covenant" is even better. Can't wait to see the movie.
This one of the best books I have ever read. Very pleasantly surprised.
There is a movie based on this book, and I found it to be very good. It's very accurate to the beginning of the book. However, as most movies based on novels, it doesn't completely own up. I watched the movie first and enjoyed it immensely; a good stand alone movie.
The book kept me mesmerized, difficult to put down. The detailed description of the times (all the way down to the cosmetics worn), the palace, streets, homes, life styles, etc. And God's laws, customs of the Hebrews, prayer, and much more about living for and following God's desires/needs of His people; how it was practiced in secret at times.......I could probably go on and on.....
The bottom line is a 5* novel that anyone would, at the least, enjoy and probably read over at least once.
Since I know the book of Esther very well, i purchased this as a gift. The book's attractive cover compelled me to start reading it. Once I started, I could not stop even though I knew exactly what would happen. I was blown away by Tommy Tenney's carefully drawn studies of particularly Esther and Mordecai and the relationship of Esther and the king. Told from Esther's perspective, we see why she was so liked by the eunuchs and other candidates. We fall in love with her as Xerxes did. Tenney stays true to the Bible but adds so much detail that we are able to see palace life in Persia and feel the many emotions Esther must have felt. Loved it.
