I started this book but it wasn’t how I’d. imagined it would be. I thought it’d be more of a reflection of Esther’s story. I prefer to just reread Esther’s story in the Bible.

The Secrets of Esther is a book that will take you into an different perspective as to what the book of Esther (in the bible) speaks to us about.  Donna challenges the reader to take Esther and see who she is within ourselves.  We also have the courage, strength and the opportunity of faith within us each and every day.  I would recommend this devotional for anyone who wants to take a deeper dive into the book of Esther who may not have done a previous study.  

Thank you NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for the e-ARC of this book.  The opinions expressed are my own.

I didn’t like this one. There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with it it just didn’t click with me. 

It drags it points and I just found it very interesting 

I kept wanting to like it I really did but I just kept not 

Sadly 2 1/2 stars

“God has placed you where you are today.”

This wonderful devotional for women offers inspiration to emulate this beautiful queen and courageous heroine’s example of strength. Author Donna Maltese walks readers through Esther’s story and encourages them to find their own place and purpose. She understands that we may have a little bit of Esther in each of us…feeling a little uncomfortable at stepping out of our comfort zone to take a risk or perhaps unable to see an opportunity when it’s first presented. It’s because of this that she gently writes to inspire readers so that we can experience growth like Esther. You’ll appreciate the short readings which are stuffed with biblical wisdom and timeless encouragement. Maltese’s passion for words and her innate desire to encourage others shine through this encouraging book.
