A Reluctant Queen: A Book Review

About The Book:

You've read it as a biblical tale of courage. Experience it anew as a heart-stirring love story.

She was a simple girl faced with an impossible choice. He was a magnificent king with a lonely heart.

Their love was the divine surprise that changed the course of history.
The beloved story of Esther springs to fresh life in this inspired novel that vibrates with mystery, intrigue, and romance.


About The Author:

Joan Wolf was born in New York City but has lived most of her adult life with her husband in Connecticut, where she raised two children and countless numbers of assorted animals. Joan is the author of numerous historical novels including The Road to Avalon which Publishers Weekly lauded as "historical fiction at its finest."

My Review:

I absolutely loved this novel, as it recounts the life of Esther. With vivid details, you will journey with Esther and experience all that she did. The writing is amazing and with each page read you will not want to put this book down. I read it in only two days! This is the first I have read of Joan Wolf, but based on this fantastic novel it will not be the last!

If you are a fan of historical fiction, particularly fictional accounts of beloved Biblical characters you will love this book!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase The Reluctant Queen at your favorite Christian retailer from Thomas Nelson Publishers
