Esther is removed from her modest Jewish family in Susa and thrust into the luxurious, decadent court of the Persian king, Xerxes. She must compete for the position of Queen against hundreds of other virgins. After intense preparation, Esther is called before the king. He is immediately smitten and marries her soon after. Just as she is adjusting to life as Queen, she is swept up into a storm of intrigue and terror. An edict has been written – and stamped with her husband’s seal – that will end not only her life, but those of the entire Jewish race. Faced with peril at every turn, uncertain about whom she can trust, Esther must carefully weave her way through a tangled web of palace intrigues before she can expose the man who plots not only the death of a nation, but schemes to seize the throne.
