Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For centuries her name has been a byword for feminine beauty, guile, and wisdom. This sweeping, meticulously researched novel restores Esther to her full, complex humanity while reanimating the glittering Persian empire in which her story unfolded. Esther comes to that land as a terrified Jewish orphan betrothed to her cousin, a well-connected courtier. She finds a world racked by intrigue and unfathomable hatreds and realizes that the only way to survive is to win the heart of its king. Passionate, suspenseful, and historically authentic, The Gilded Chamber illuminates the dilemma of a woman torn between her heart and her sense of duty, resulting in pure narrative enchantment.

Review:

"[A] convincing, complex picture of Esther, and her descriptions of the palace and its secrets will hold readers spellbound." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A nice retelling that adds a great deal by way of color and perspective." Kirkus Reviews
