Kasia grew up in a poor Jewish home with more siblings than luxuries. But when a chance encounter forces her to the palace of Xerxes, she becomes concubine to the richest man in the world. Years of prayers are answered when Kasia's childhood friend arrives at the palaca after war, but even as she determines to see Esther crowned in place of the bloodthirsty former queen, she knows the true battle is far from over. Combining the biblical account of Esther with Herodotus's Histories, Jewel of Persia is the story of a love that nearly destroys an empire...and the friendship that saves a nation.
