Esther. From the First Wife's Point of View.

At the recommendation of his brother, I read Rob Alloway's book this week and LOVED it.
Rob looks at the events in three Old Testament books; Esther, Nehamiah and Ezra and retells the stories from a different perspective. For example, Esther's story is told by the King's first wife. Her voice is strong and believable. Fascinating.

There is an extensive list of references in the end notes, so I'm going to assume Alloway has done his homework and researched the historical and biblical accounts thoroughly.

I love books like this.
