A King forced to banish his wife.
A peasant girl striving to live a peaceful life in the chaos that is Susa.
One chance for these two unlikely souls to be united. 

As a young, Jewish orphan Hadassah was graciously taken under the wing of her cousin, who ultimately raised her. Her whole life she has known nothing of royal life or the splendor of Persia. When she is captured and taken to the palace, with hundreds of other young ladies, everything she knows is about to change drastically.

The description in this paragraph is so wonderfully done. I love the line, "Droplets of liquid nerves flood the creases of my palms." That's the most beautiful way I've ever heard sweat described.
Omg, I love this story, I've watched so many movies that are based on this story😍😍

Yay! A book based on a Bible story! I'm only on Chapter 1 but I can already tell this is going to be good. Keep up the great work!!

Being born into a Jewish family I was always told the story of queen Easter/ Hadassa. I have always been in love with the story, loving every part. I've been looking for books exactly like this and can't wait to start reading it.
