I love having a secret and knowing it is a special surprise that will bless someone. Yes, I have a terrible time not bursting out with it ahead of time but I think that is part of the fun. How do you feel about these kinds of secrets?

Well, I have a secret that I can share with you. Jill Eileen Smith has the cover for her newest book, Star of Persia! I’m sure I’m not alone in loving the Biblical account of this beautiful and faith-filled woman. I’ve read several fictional accounts of her story and am very much looking forward to feasting on the delicacies Jill Eileen Smith has found in her research and will be sharing in Star of Persia!

First, I’ll tell you about the book:

In an effort to complete a war his father had planned to win, King Xerxes calls every governor, satrap, and official in his vast kingdom to his palace in Susa to strategize and feast. When they finally leave, he decides on one more week of frivolity, which ends in the banishment of his favorite wife, something he never intended to do. But when he discovers Esther, Xerxes is sure he has a second chance at happiness.

In her wildest dreams, Esther could never have imagined that she would end up as queen of Persia. Yet she knows better than to become complacent. Another of Xerxes's wives is vying for position, and his closest advisor has a deep and dangerous grudge against Esther's adoptive father. Caught in the middle of palace politics, Esther will find herself in an impossible position: risk her life or consign her people to annihilation.

With her impeccable research and her imaginative flair, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the romantic, suspenseful, and beloved story of Esther, queen of Persia.
