Award-winning author Rebecca Kanner returns to the Old Testament, this time drawing from one of the most powerful and often-portrayed female figures in Biblical history: Esther, the Jewish virgin who became a Persian queen and saved her people from destruction. [...] There are several deviations from the traditional Esther story that Kanner takes which reveal a complexity of depth and richness beneath the glittering facade of the Persian Empire, a setting and culture which, in other retellings, can be forgotten completely. Kanner focuses not on Esther’s faith, but on her desperation, which makes for a compelling piece of historical fiction.
