Told for many thousands of years, Esther's story is still thrilling as well as inspiring. The story is full of drama, bringing together a mighty king, a jealous scoundrel and a wise uncle. However, at its center is a clever heroine who was so beautiful that she was known as the Morning Star. It is only because of Queen Esther's cunning and courage that evil was brought to justice and many lives were saved.
