Hadassah, named after the biblical Queen Esther, follows her father to the family vault, where he hands her a parchment to read and sign. Then he gives her a book that tells Esther's story. Brides have followed this tradition in their families for centuries. In a melodious voice Aimee Lilly narrates this gripping action-adventure story, filled with court intrigue and suspense. She portrays Hadassah in a variety of tense situations, seamlessly switching emotions and incidents. The pacing is tight, the delivery exemplary. Hadassah is the Jewish word for “star,” Queen Esther's original name, and this warm story, filled with fresh insights, is a star as well.
