Summary

A gripping action/adventure full of political intrigue and suspense, with a brand-new perspective on a historical figure you may think you already know!

Both a palace thriller and a Jewish woman's memoir, Hadassah brings the age-old story of Esther to life. This historically accurate novel, layered with fresh insights, provides a fascinating twist on a pivotal time in religious history, and listeners will find it bursting with pause-resisting drama.

During in-depth research on the life of Esther and its setting in ancient Persia - contemporary Iraq and Iran - Tenney discovered a compelling, heart-stopping tale lying at its core. He uses here his skilled storytelling gifts to capture the power and beauty of the peasant girl who became queen.

Doesn’t follow my book.

Cover, title and Author of the book all match, but reading is not the same. Very disappointed!

Very interesting

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator was super good. Her voice is perfect for this book.
