Ok, I got another one of C. D. Ross’ books! I could not resist!!!!!!! So, when I find a Christian author I kind-of stick to them like glue! And when Ms. Ross sent me her book ‘An Outlaws Redemption’ I FELL IN LOVE! So I went and got 3 more of her books!!!!! (And I plan on getting the rest of her books soon!) Can you tell I love her books? All of those sentences ended with explanation points…

This book is a retelling of the beautiful story of Queen Esther. It is a book of love overcoming all! God’s love. And the way He can guide one woman to save her entire kingdom. This retelling is a modern retelling and I adore it!!!!!!!!!

The book was funny, interesting, and is such a beautiful romance that warms your heart! I loved it! I got it yesterday and could not wait to read it today! And then I finished it today… And now I’m sad!!!!! Cause it was just soooooooo good! (Ms. Ross? PLEASE WRITE MORE BOOKS!)

Now, there is some “adult” stuff in this book. Nothing is ever described, but it is mentioned. It is the story of Esther, and she did marry a king who… uh… well just read the Bible and find out for yourself.

Over all, THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!!!!! I just can’t even describe how I love it!!!! It is the perfect book for a Christian fiction lover! This is a book I suggest to girls 16 and up, and I hope you have a fantastic day!!!!!!! -The Young Llama Reader.
