Esther Didn't Dream of Being Queen
Esther of the Purim story wonders whether it is a good idea to answer the summons when the king seeks a new Queen.
A well-told Bible story of a strong, determined, persistent woman that will resonate with modern young readers. -KIRKUS REVIEWS

Will she have the courage to stand up for what's right?
