From the award-winning author of Sinners and the Sea comes a breathtaking new look into the timeless tale of Queen Esther, “a riveting tale of courage” (New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee). A glittering Persian king has a vast empire that reaches farther than where the sun meets the horizon. He is bathed in riches and commands a frightening military force. He possesses power beyond any other mortal man and rules his kingdom as a god. Anything he desires, he has. Any woman he wants, he possesses. Thousands of them. Young virgins from all across his many lands. A Jewish girl is ripped from her hut by the king’s brutish warriors and forced to march across blistering, scorched earth to the capital city. Trapped for months in the splendid cage of the king’s palace, she must avoid the ire of the king’s concubines and eunuchs all while preparing for her one night with the king. Soon the fated night arrives, and she does everything in her power to captivate the king and become his queen. But wearing the crown brings with it a new set of dangers. When a ruthless man plies the king’s ear with whispers of genocide, it is up to the young queen to prevent the extermination of the Jews. She must find the strength within to violate the king’s law, risk her life, and save her people. This is a story of finding hidden depths of courage within one’s self. Of risking it all to stand up for what is right. This is the story of Queen Esther.
In the fifth-century B.C, a beautiful Jewish girl named Esther becomes the queen of Persia and discovers God's purpose for her life when she courageously saves her people from death at the hands of the evil Haman.
Life in Chile was far from simple for anyone. As an outspoken determined woman, Esther Olivares was bound to walk a rocky path. Add to that a complicated family, a turbulent political situation and the growing realisation that she's a lesbian. The story covers her life between 1939-1977. It weaves in the unsettled politics of Chile with her attempts at living a lesbian life at a time which did not make it easy. Esther doesn't tolerate bullying or injustice of any kind and bravely stands up for what she feels is right which leads her into trouble again and again. Lucky to be alive, she eventually moves to Australia.
Trapped in the sensual swirl of an alien culture, her poise, beauty, and skill with the four-stringed oud caught the eye of Hegai. As she rose through the harem ranks, her true identity carefully concealed, her faith in eclipse, Esther had no inkling that the fate of a nation would hang upon her courage. Based on meticulous historical research, Trudy J. Morgan-Cole weaves the biblical story of Esther into secular history. Her deep narrative, involving more than 70 characters, brings to life the Zoroastrian society of ancient Persia and chronicles the known exploits and foibles of king Xerxes in authentic detail. Her amazing story shows how God turns women with common fears, struggles, and identity crises into heroines of faith. If you liked Terri Fivash's Joseph, you'll love Trudy J. Morgan-Cole's Esther.
Patty Pell leads you to examine the story of Esther. You'll discover how godly character often develops under pressure. And you'll discover ideas for living a godly life in the midst of contemporary pressures.

Much of the study is based on material that exists only in manuscripts, and it introduces many exegetes hitherto unknown or unstudied.
