Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book of Esther comes to life in this vivid novel based on the Old Testament tale....Kanner's descriptions are convincing and rich." (Kirkus Reviews)

"The brutality of Esther’s experience makes her bravery that much more impressive, while her understandable struggle with fear makes her believable." (RT Book Reviews)

"The author retells a familiar story, interweaving the intrigues and conspiracies with the heartbreak of a young girl who rises to the heights of history." (CBA Retailers & Resources)

"Distinctively powerful and creative..." (Booklist)

"Fans of biblical fiction will love this fresh retelling. Kanner’s characters crackle to life as Esther’s tale is related in glorious detail. Razor-sharp dialog set against the backdrop of a court rife with treachery and political intrigue keep the pages turning." (Library Journal)

“Vivid…enchanting.” (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

“Fascinating to read.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

“A compelling piece of historical fiction.” (Historical Novel Society)

"Kanner’s Esther is the best of the bunch." (The Baffler)

"Skillful, empathetic characterizations; elegant writing, and seamless, edge-of-the-seat plotting make Esther a novel you won’t want to put down, and that you’ll wish would never end.” (Sherry Jones, author of The Jewel of Medina and The Sharp Hook of Love )

“In her compelling novel of this well-known biblical heroine, Rebecca Kanner reveals the story of Esther as it’s never been told. With evocative prose and vivid historical detail, Kanner’s riveting story brings to life an imperfect, conflicted woman gifted with both beauty and intelligence. With strength and courage, Esther navigates the dangers of Xerxes court and her own desires to become the heroine of her story and save a nation.” (Stephanie Landsem, author of The Tomb )

“Like a shimmering mirage, the peasant girl Hadassah rises from humble roots to become the beguiling Queen Esther. Let this tale of exotic lands and palace intrigues weave its spell on you. You will be rattled, enthralled, and ultimately won over as Rebecca Kanner brings another woman of the Bible to radiant life.” (Duncan W. Alderson, author of the Harper’s Bazaar must-read Magnolia City )

"Kanner has done it again. A beautiful story spun with the gilt and grit of historical detail and biblical tradition. Esther the way it really could have happened, a riveting tale of courage." (Tosca Lee, New York Times bestselling author )
