Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The life of the peasant girl Haddasah who became Esta, Queen of Persia and obviously based on the biblical story. Itâs evocative of harem life and the helplessness felt by captives. An interesting period nicely portrayed.

Comparison: Sharon Penman, Jude Morgan, Anita Diamant.
Similar this month: None but try Michelle Paver and Tash Aw.

Synopsis

Gilded Chamber by Rebecca Kohn

One girl, one nation, one chance . . . Esther's story is one of the most dramatic in the Bible: a renowned beauty, she used her feminine wiles to capture the heart of a king and so win the deliverance of her people from the threat of death.

The Gilded Chamber creatively re-works the famous story to show us how this young girl came to be in the harem of King Xerxes and how her path to womanhood enabled her to save a nation and find peace. This is a tale of strength, seduction and survival, of the solidarity of women, and its descriptions of the Persian palace and the secrets contained within those walls will hold you spellbound to the final page.

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
