Book Review: Chosen, The Lost Diaries of Queen Esther

Ginger Garrett writes an excellent story based on Queen Esther's life. Chosen, The Lost Diaries of Queen Esther is a wonderfully written book.  As I read this book I was enthralled, it was as if I was in the story myself and I couldn't wait to where each page would take me!  This is truly a book that I will treasure.

Esther, an orphan was living a simple life, selling her wares at market, growing beautiful roses, and she fell in love with Cyrus, one whom she thought she'd never have.  Cyrus did want to marry Esther, and his father agreed, saying he would work it the midst of their happiness, Cyrus and Esther did not realize the drama that was going to unfold right before their eyes.  King Xerxes had banished his wife and was on a quest for a new Queen, taking all young girls of his liking into his harem to be trained for the possibility of becoming Queen.  Of course, Esther was chosen, on part due to Cyrus' father.  As Esther faces a new life in the palace among hundreds of girls vying for the King's attentions she becomes not only more lovely, but strong as well.  She challenges Xerxes, and the outcome leads to a web of deceit, love and fear.

Chosen in the first book in the Lost Loves of the Bible series, and I am anxiously waiting for the next story to be published!
