Author(s): 

Wolf’s latest gives readers a wonderful glimpse into the life of Queen Esther. Readers will enjoy getting to know her as a woman beset with political ambition and family rivalries. While this novel doesn’t completely follow the biblical story, readers will still enjoy this Cinderella tale come to life.

Esther grew up with her Uncle Mordecai. Content to stay by his side, she puts off marriage until she’s ready. When Mordecai hears of the king’s search for a new wife, a plan is formed to send the beautiful Esther, in hopes that she will be selected as queen. Esther never expected to be picked, nor to fall in love with her new husband. Following through on a plan of deceit and lies gets harder each day. Only God can give her the courage to step into the role of a lifetime. (THOMAS NELSON, Jul., 384 pp., $15.99)
