From the best-selling author of The God Chasers! You'll be swept away by the biblical story of a brave young girl who---in a dramatic twist of fate---was handpicked to become Esther, Queen of Persia.

Powerful Biblical Fiction with a New Look
Against a vividly painted historical backdrop, bestselling author Tommy Tenney breathes life into the incredible story of Hadassah, a simple peasant girl who is chosen over 127 other young women to become Esther, queen of Persia. Was it her beauty alone, or did she know an important and mysterious truth?
Tenney takes readers to pre-Islamic Persia to uncover the secrets that helped Esther win the heart and gain the ear of the king, and ultimately to save her people. Interwoven in this gripping drama are extraordinary new insights into the Book of Esther, its purpose and message.
