Jews celebrate the story of sweet Esther and evil Haman every Purim. Author Tenney spins the story colorfully and creatively, with Aimee Lilly breathlessly delivering the prose. HADASSAH does a nice job of delving into the captive become queen whose Jewish roots must remain hidden until they are revealed to an astonished King Xerxes and his subjects at a critical moment. There is no lack of pathos and pride in the recording, and the story moves along steadily to a clever denouement. A religious audiobook without proselytizing is a bit of a relief.
