Good battles evil in this timeless story of Biblical heroism. When Esther becomes King Xerxes’s queen, her cousin Mordecai and the despicable Haman engage in a dangerous game of intrigue for control of the young Persian King Xerxes. It’s no secret that Haman plans to exterminate the Jews.
But Haman’s plans include something horrible for Mordecai and his people. It is up to Mordecai’s niece Esther to win the affection of the King, unmask Haman’s treachery and save the Jewish people. Can Esther convince her husband to spare her people—even though she may be putting her own life at risk? Based upon the Book of Esther, this delightful retelling emphasizes the values of courage, faith and obedience.
