Check out Chosen
She was born Hadassah but she would be known as Esther. Her family was killed, during the exile. Her cousin, Mordecai rescued her and raised her himself. They lived under the King’s nose. Mordecai was a sheep herder. Though, he was educated and taught Esther how to read and write. Esther had scrolls that she would use to keep track of her most in\important thoughts.
King Xerxes is in the market for a new wife. The search begins. All the young ladies hope of becoming the next Queen…everyone but Esther. She already has found her soul mate. His name is Cyrus. Esther is chosen to become the King’s wife. Will she open her heart and find a place in it for the King?
Chosen: The Lost Diaries of Queen Esther can only be brought to life in this spectacular way by author, Ginger Garrett. This is the second book I have read by Mrs. Garrett. She brings depth and a well versed knowledge of the topic she is writing about. What I enjoyed the most about this book is that Mrs. Garrett tried to keep it as authentic as possible. I am not that familiar with Esther from the Bible but after reading this book, I plan to read up on the story of Esther. She was a very powerful and strong woman. Esther was not taken by the King’s charm. If you are looking for a book for your next book club or Bible study, then you need to make the right choice and choose Chosen: The Lost Diaries of Queen Esther.
