The daughter of missionaries, Hannah Pratt dreams of starting a school for the Bedouin clan with whom she spent her childhood. After completing her education in the United States, she returns to the desert to pursue that dream—only to learn her parents have been receiving threats from within the community they serve. As the danger escalates, Hannah must decide how far she’ll go to stay faithful to a calling that could cost her everything.
As sheikh, Karim Al-Amir feels the weight of responsibility as the leader of his people. When a mysterious illness ravages the clan’s flocks and threatens to destroy their centuries-old way of life, some of his people believe the American doctors and their daughter, his childhood friend, are to blame. Karim must do something to keep Hannah and her parents safe—even if the only solution is to be found within marriage vows.
In a society where the line is drawn between us and them, where Christianity is outlawed and foreigners suspect, will Karim and Hannah’s union heal wounds . . . or inflict a final, fatal blow?
Old Testament history meets Twenty-first Century tensions in this compassionate, tender inspirational romance.

My Thoughts
WOW! Sarah Monzon has produced an incredible story. The Esther Paradigm is filled with tension and conflict, yet the beauty of God's love and power shines through on every page. This is such a unique story, written with elegance and passion. Sarah's heart is clearly expressed within this story.
Karim and Hannah come from such different backgrounds and beliefs. It is so amazing to watch their relationship unfold in this modern "marriage of convenience". Karim is definitely a handsome man. Strong, powerful, protective...he has a soft heart and is so tender with Hannah. Can we say "Swoon Worthy"? And Hannah is so brave. She has strength she doesn't think she has. But God's favor is evident on her life form the beginning.
You are sure to be surprised along the way and left with you jaw hanging open at the power and truth that is expressed. So, what are you waiting for? Go get this book and enjoy a very different version of being called "For such a time as this".
I received a complimentary copy of The Esther Paradigm. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.

  1. I never thought Macy's would be a vanishing store in America, but here we are. The way they designed things back then was more modest in women's apparel. Let's get back to that.
