Read from April 12 to 21, 2010

I haven't found a book that I like yet about Old Testament figures, including Orson Scott Card's books.

I felt like this retelling of the story of Esther was a romance disguised as historical fiction--which is really weird, because I have a hard time with the believability of a romance where your husband can arbitrarily have you killed at a moment's notice because you displease him, and he also is sleeping with his harem of 100 concubines. Really? Sorry, didn't work for me.

Faith Gutierrez Have you read Francine Rivers? You might enjoy her novels... They were the first about Old Testament figures that I really enjoyed.
