She was a simple girl faced with an impossible choice. He was a magnificent king with a lonely heart. Their love was the divine surprise that changed the course of history.

This is a story about Queen Esther like you’ve never read before. Set in the glittering capital of the Persian Empire, A Reluctant Queen brings to life this powerful, timeless story of love, faith, and how God works his plans through ordinary people.

Wolf convincingly fills in the gaps of the biblical account with beautiful enhancements of the romance as well as the drama. While learning proper royal protocol and amid entanglement in palace intrigues, the unlikely happens: Queen Esther falls deeply in love with her husband. When she discovers the diabolical scheme of an evil high-ranking official against the Jewish nation, she has to make a decision that threatens her marriage and her life to save her people.

    " I've been a Joan Wolf fan for awhile. She's written historical fiction, romance, and mystery, as well as some contemporary novels. This is, as far as I know, her first Christian fiction, and I liked it very much. Her take on Esther's life and sacrifice for her people was inspiring and made for a quick-moving, entertaining story. "
