SUBTITLE: The Lost Diaries Of Queen Esther

Community Description
"There is only one ransom for a woman's heart, and that is love, given in honor." But what becomes of the heart when that honor is compromised?

Wrenched from a simple life for her beauty, Esther finds herself at the mercy of the King Xerxes. Leaving behind her only relative, her cousin Mordecai, and her first true love, Cyrus, she is thrown headlong into the unrestrained extravagance of palace living. Quick of mind and strong in spirit, she refuses to suffer the fate of her harem sisters and boldly challenges Xerxes to give of his heart before taking his pleasure and thus seals her place beside him as his queen. As conspiracy spins its diabolical web, Esther's mind and spirit waver as she is forced to confront the past in order to save her future.

Puts flesh on a dynamic, historical character  Jan 9, 2008
The Old Testament book of Esther is somewhat mysterious. Never is the name of God mentioned. The characters never pray or even acknowledge a sovereign God. It's an exciting story with beauty, war, genocide, power and gluttony. The title character is a Jewess, but without any reference to God or even faith, it seems shockingly unreligious to be included in the Bible. Ginger Garrett's debut novel does an incredible job explaining where God and faith may be found in Esther's story.

The book is formatted as Esther's actual diary, discovered Persian antiquities. Scattered between this will-be-queen's entries are modern day newpaper clippings, press releases, commentaries by historians, and footnotes of context or culture.

This was a great book! I thoroughly enjoyed it. The historical context was fatanstic. The sidebars and commentaries were, at times, like a devotional encouraging personal application of Biblical truths.

Bonus feature: a Persian Dinner and Discussion Guide. Nine questions are suggested for group discussion, but the best part is the recipes. Yes - recipes! The author includes six recipes and a menu for an authentic Persian feast -- including Chicken in Pomegranate Sauce, Lamb Kabobs with Mint and Rosewater Cookies. It's perfect for group discussion, Bible study groups, a Purim celebration or just wooing your own king.

Final Thoughts: This is a great read for women who enjoy interesting characters and history. The only thing I did not like about the book: the author occasionally takes a modern pro-women view, unrealistic for an ancient middle-eastern culture. These moments were minor and toward the end of the story. Even with these shattering my suspension of belief, I gladly recommend this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to host my own Persian feast.
Good Read  Oct 28, 2007
This is an excellent perception of the story of Queen Esther, in fact Esther is my Hebrew name. The writer inserts current events between the chapters bringing the story of the Jews up-to-date. I really enjoyed this story and informing everyone of why the name Hadassah is world wide.
Great read! Very interesting  Sep 3, 2007
I loved this book. It brought the Bible to life. After reading the book, I went back and reread the book of Esther and it was amazing how a story that I would not have ordinarily related with suddenly became very very real. My husband picked up the book while I was in the middle of it and we ended up reading over each others shoulders to finish it because neither of us wanted to wait!
Queen Esther  Jun 27, 2007
An interesting book, filled with actual facts. Sometimes, I found it difficult to recognize fact from fiction. An easy reading and captivating story. It makes me want to learn more about Queen Esther and her period of time in history. I thoughly enjoy this reading and I highly recommend it to others.
Chosen - An interesting Perspective  Feb 3, 2007
The Book of Esther is a well known story of a woman from the Old Testament. Much is not known of Esther, so the author of this book fills in areas of Esther's life that are left to the imagination. The book was well written and gave the reader a peek into what it would have been like to be a woman living during the period of 480 BC. This concept is supported by the diary style format of reading the story in first person. As the story grows, the words in the diary start to reflect the growth and maturity of Esther herself. The story of Esther has always intrigued me, so I enjoyed the diary very much. However, I felt the story could have had more depth into specific characters and events. Some parts of the story were not clear and could have been explained in deeper detail. If you are not familiar with the story of Esther, and want to be surprised on the ending, read the book 'Chosen' first, and then read 'The Book of Esther' in the Bible. However, I would suggest reading the 'Book of Esther' first to be able to appreciate the author's creative style, and her attempt to bring Esther to life.
