Love and Courage

Star of Persia written by Jill Eileen Smith is a story of Esther, a Jewish girl living in a country that is full of pagans. A story of rags to riches, in her wildest dreams Esther never imagined becoming a queen of Persia. How does one stay true to God when faced with the impossible. Would Esther be able to hide her Judaism? Love, duty, fear and courage. In the court of Xerxes, which will prevail?

I remember celebrating Purim as a child and dressing up as Esther. A little girl’s dream to be a queen. The author did a fantastic job researching the history of the story of Esther and writing Star of Persia. If you enjoy reading historical fiction, I highly recommend reading the book.

I received a copy of the book from Revell Publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Chasing The White Lion

“Chasing the White Lion” by author James R. Hannibal is a story of twists, turns and mysteries. I did not realize that “The Gryphon Heist” was the first book that I should have read to understand and follow the story line and characters in the second book. This book is not my style of reading, if one likes James Bond or Tome Clancy than this one is for you.
