This was a good book, but now as great as what One night with the king was. So I got bored a bit. But still a good read.

I finished this book while I was on tour with the 2011 Integrity Beauty Tour for Integrity Beauty Women of Excellence Christian Women Network in Warren, Ohio.

This book wasn't bad by any means; it was an interesting and enjoyable read for me. I liked it, and appreciated the research the author must've put into it.
The book is well-written and captiviating - I was glad I started it!
The ending wasn't my favourite part, but it wasn't terrible.

But yeah, it was good. =)

Overall, I enjoyed it. It was interesting and seemed Biblically accurate the best of my knowledge. However, the ending was different than I think historically accurate...other than that, I highly recommend it for lovers of the Esther story.
