Even though liberties were taken with the story of Esther the basic story did stay intact. It’s difficult to take a well know Biblical account and keep it entirely accurate and have a great novel at the same time. I like how the author was selective with the events that were added and deleted from the novel. This would make for a great group book, as it would be easy to get your not-yet-saved friends to read a novel. It’s less intimidating than asking them to read the Bible story from the scriptures. Once the book is read it would make for a great comparison and they can see where the author took creative liberties with the novel. The last page has a group reading guide, what more could we ask for.
I am pleased to give this book a five star rating.
