Love and Courage

Star of Persia written by Jill Eileen Smith is a story of Esther, a Jewish girl living in a country that is full of pagans. A story of rags to riches, in her wildest dreams Esther never imagined becoming a queen of Persia. How does one stay true to God when faced with the impossible. Would Esther be able to hide her Judaism? Love, duty, fear and courage. In the court of Xerxes, which will prevail?

I remember celebrating Purim as a child and dressing up as Esther. A little girl’s dream to be a queen. The author did a fantastic job researching the history of the story of Esther and writing Star of Persia. If you enjoy reading historical fiction, I highly recommend reading the book.

I received a copy of the book from Revell Publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
