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, and of the solidarity of women; its descriptions of the Persian palace and the secrets contained within those walls will hold you spellbound to the final page.
