A POWERFUL, ROMANCE-LACED THRILLER SET IN ANCIENT AND MODERN IRAQ, IRAN AND ISRAEL
The compelling bestseller HADASSAH: One Night With the King expanded Queen Esther’s story as has never been told before. But what might have have occurred after the biblical account’s last page? And what about the contemporary Hadassah, wife of Israel’s Prime Minister and the last one to receive Queen Esther’s journals...?
HADASSAH COVENANT A Queen’s Legacy
What was the crowning moment of Esther’s life? Was it as the young and beautiful Hadassah whom the king chose as his bride? Or the incredibly risky and courageous moment when she begged him for the life of her people? Or perhaps that first Feast of Purim when the Hebrews in exile celebrated their salvation from annihilation with their beloved Queen?
Whatever the exact moment of her destiny, Queen Esther’s legacy continues to modern times. But at the time, she easily could have wondered if God had forgotten her.
With her husband, King Xerxes, now dead, she felt that she had become merely a pathetic royal widow. Did her life still have purpose?
The answer came in the person of Leah, the young Jewess also dragged into the Palace intrigue and whom Esther had befriended, the same Leah to whom she addressed her memoirs....
But the final proof of that destiny doesn’t surface until one pivotal evening in modern Iraq when the throb of a helicopter gunship signals a raid unlike any before it.... And when the screams and dust and chaos has settled, a lone man in civilian clothing stands over a pile of old documents....
A HISTORY-ALTERING TRUTH THUNDERS ACROSS THE CENTURIES...WILL THIS EXPLOSIVE DISCOVERY ONCE AGAIN SAVE A PEOPLE?
Back to top.
"(Four Stars) Tenney and Olsen's knuckle-biter has a compelling mystery set in both modern and biblical times. Characterization is light throughout, except for Esther and her modern namesake, Hadassah, who steal the show."
Romantic Times, December 2005
"The new addition to the Hadassah series is a fun read, switching back and forth in time. As a mystery, it combines a historical Biblical story with a story set in current times—the past tied to the here and now."
Awesome Fiction, November 2005
"This sequel makes the previous book much richer, and expands on that framing sequence beautifully. The action and storyline progress expertly... and the characters are interesting. Most interesting of all is the immediate aftermath of the Biblical Esther story, dealing with Xerxes and Esther's place in the court of Artaxerxes. Recommended."
