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.

    This book is my first venture into historical Biblical fiction and I have to say I was sorely disappointed. The book of Esther is my favorite book of the Old Testament. I've done several Bible studies on this book and I absolutely love the story. I expected "historical" fiction to be a story told with "creative license" but keeping the facts in place. The one thing this author did that seriously bothered me was that she kept Vashti a part of the story even after she had been banished. She was never to go before the king again, yet this author puts her back in the harem - fine - but allows her to attend the king's birthday feast where she mutilates and kills an innocent young woman. After that, she kidnaps a child of another woman in the harem and sacrifices him to her god. She is also allowed to "stalk" Esther, appearing in the queen's chambers when she wanted to. I also didn't like that the entire story of Haman and the edicts took less than 100 pages in this book of over 300. Esther's courage was amazing and yet not given the time in the story it deserved. I, personally, won't pick up any more of Angela Hunt's books.

    This has been one of my favorite biblical fiction books that I have ever read. This flowed nicely and I could keep up with all the characters. This is about Esther and how she ends up being the Queen of Persia even though she is Jewish. She keeps this a secret but has to come clean when there is a chance that many Jews will die. I couldn't put this down. I received this book from book fun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    Esther by Angela Hunt gives a very descriptive retelling of the story of Queen Esther from the Bible. As always her story is well researched and presented in a way to keep her readers captivated. I always look forward to reading this author's works.

    I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Hadassah, a ward of her Cousin Mordecai, was living in Susa when Xerxes, the King of Persia issued a call for all the most beautiful, young & pure women in the Kingdom to be brought to him at the Palace. He has exiled the Queen for refusing his order and he is looking for a new Queen. Hadassah is captured and forcibly taken to the palace of the pagan ruler on the day she flees Susa with her fiance. Fearing for her life she changes her name to Esther and can not reveal that she is Jewish. This was a story from Esther's point of view and the King's Eunuch, Harbonah. I was taken right inside the King's Palace, the court, the harem, the King's chamber and the daily life that Esther was living from two point of views. History was given a twist for a wonderful Historical fiction accounting of Queen Esther. I thought it was well-researched and very well-written. I liked that the story remained historically and Biblically accurate. If you like Christian Historical fiction.. You will like this one I know I did!

    I was gifted a copy by The BookClub Network (bookfun.org) to review and give my honest opinion.

    This is my second novel I have read about the Biblical story of Esther and this one was fascinating.

    I admit that I had an unrealistic view of Esther and placed her on a pedestal of being perfect prior reading. However Angela Hunt changed that idea and brought Esthers life alive in a new way for me.

    For the first 100 pages I was not into it and upset that this Esther was not how I viewed the Biblical Esther in my mind. As the book progressed though I saw that this indeed could have been how the real Esther was. Reading in first person really brought this to life. I loved being with her in this spiritual journey and growth into a woman.

    I will also mention that I have always admired Esthers courage, but now I admire her in a completely new way. I have a lot better understanding of daily life in the harem and how it could have been to be a wife to a king. The rich detail and emotionalism really helped this idea take shape in my mind.

    Overall, I enjoyed this novel as it stuck to Biblical and historical fact. It was eye-opening to how nitty-gritty things could have been and how amazing it was that Esther let God use her the way He did.

    I give this novel 3.5/4 out of 5 stars.
