    This book, y all Not only one of my faves for this year It s one of my new all time favorite favorites This is one I will rereadthan once A book I will give to everyone who will stand still long enough to take it A story I will talk about even years from now.Hannah and Karim s story touched me deeply Not only because of their tender and passionate friendship set on fire get ready to swoon, y all but also because the heart of Jesus shines through every page.Hannah is in a tough s This book, y all Not only one of my faves for this year It s one of my new all time favorite favorites This is one I will rereadthan once A book I will give to everyone who will stand still long enough to take it A story I will talk about even years from now.Hannah and Karim s story touched me deeply Not only because of their tender and passionate friendship set on fire get ready to swoon, y all but also because the heart of Jesus shines through every page.Hannah is in a tough situation, one that in many ways parallels the Biblical story of Esther As the daughter of missionaries to the Bedouins, Hannah has grown up in a world that most of us would struggle to adapt to even for just a few days Her faith is tested like never before, but it s also strengthened like never before Several parts of Hannah s story are uncomfortable for we Western Jesus girls to consider but doesn t the story of Esther sit a little uncomfortably with us too I think Monzon has done an absolutely fantastic job of taking perhaps the most intriguing Biblical narrative and placing it in a contemporary context that captures us and leaves us riveted to the page.Bottom Line The Esther Paradigm is Sarah Monzon s best book yet The whole story, not to mention Karim himself, is bravely unique to Christian fiction but it is here for such a time as this This is a novel we all need to read and ponder and allow the truth tucked inside the story to change our own hearts A must read for everyone Can t recommend it highly enough I borrowed this book through Kindle Unlimited first seen at Reading Is My SuperPower

    Well, I m gobsmacked Not sure I can find the words to express what an impact this book made on me How much I loved the hero and heroine and their sublime romance even though it seemed like it shouldn t work.First things first dust off your fainting couch which shouldn t take too long if you re anything like me Mine gets quite the work out with all the romance I love to read And then prepare to give yourself plenty of savoring time because Monzon has created such spellbinding imagery tha Well, I m gobsmacked Not sure I can find the words to express what an impact this book made on me How much I loved the hero and heroine and their sublime romance even though it seemed like it shouldn t work.First things first dust off your fainting couch which shouldn t take too long if you re anything like me Mine gets quite the work out with all the romance I love to read And then prepare to give yourself plenty of savoring time because Monzon has created such spellbinding imagery that you ll be tempted to linger for awhile.We are treated to two very distinct first person points of view courtesy of Hannah and Karim And I do mean distinct Karim s voice is soexotic Not sure if that s quite the right word but somehow, the author brings a multicultural flare to his thoughts It s in the cadence of his words and the imagery he conjures up to describe or explain somethingor someone Like Hannah Swoon Fainting couch here I come And it s also apparent in the reverence he has for his people and his God.And Hannah caught between two worlds She s lived among the Bedouin clan since she was six with the exception of a sojourn stateside for college In some ways, she s spent her whole life trying to fit in not Arabian enough for her beloved clansmen and women and not American enough for her college friends She s a unique blend of both cultures and doesn t quite fit with either though there s no doubt her heart belongs to the people of the desert.Hannah is an interesting mix of conviction and trepidation She struggles, as many of us do, with being enough Doubts and feelings of inadequacy threaten the life God is leading her towards Emotions are raw, circumstances uneasy and Hannah has to step out in faith in the midst of turmoil Such a beautiful parallel to the biblical Esther s story.And the ending goosebump raising, hallelujah chorus singing perfection

    Another beautiful read from a very talented author It is no secret that I love all things written by Ms Monzon But this novel and the characters will stay by me for years Oh and the kiss Sigh That first kiss between Hannah and Karim Al Amir is probably one of my favorite novel kisses of ALL TIMES

    This is a beautifully written book The characters are written so well, that you will take part in the emotions of the characters, the reader is drawn in to the dry dessert, the camel rides, and the thrill of something as simple as water.I love that the American family fully puts themselves into the culture of where they live It is in Hannah s naturea strong part of her, just like her faith The love story from children to adulthood is beautifully and seamlessly done There was only one thin This is a beautifully written book The characters are written so well, that you will take part in the emotions of the characters, the reader is drawn in to the dry dessert, the camel rides, and the thrill of something as simple as water.I love that the American family fully puts themselves into the culture of where they live It is in Hannah s naturea strong part of her, just like her faith The love story from children to adulthood is beautifully and seamlessly done There was only one thing that I d have preferred to be different, two incidents that I would want switched in time, just looking at it with my heart as if Hannah were my daughter Yes, this book puts you IN it so well that it had me viewing it as if I WAS there I truly loved that about this read.This story has suspense, romance, a unique setting, powerful characters, and a tremendously strong faith thread blended beautifully throughout the plot and storyline It s so nice to read books in the Christian genre that truly talk about Christ, who He is and what He has done for us.I received this book from the author All opinions are my own

    Spoilers, folks Y all This book was so, so beautifully written The descriptions made me want to stay in the world forever It was so well developed and so real and drew me in right from the very beginning I m amazed by the author s talent and ability to spin a world so thoroughly It takes place in the desert so not an actual different world, just one I m not very familiar with So, why the low rating Sadly there was a lot of content in this book that I didn t agree with Yes, I get wh Spoilers, folks Y all This book was so, so beautifully written The descriptions made me want to stay in the world forever It was so well developed and so real and drew me in right from the very beginning I m amazed by the author s talent and ability to spin a world so thoroughly It takes place in the desert so not an actual different world, just one I m not very familiar with So, why the low rating Sadly there was a lot of content in this book that I didn t agree with Yes, I get why the author did it, and that s why I wanted to read it in the first place, because Esther s account in the Bible is one of my favorites Yet, I feel like it s rather dangerous to promote what the author did mainly the main character who is a christian marrying a muslim after praying about it for a day and not seeking out counsel, simply because she felt like God told her to And, as someone who has muslim friends, I really don t think there s any way that someone who was as strong as a muslim as her husband would have ever knowingly married a christian There were a few other things that bothered me, but that was the main one


  9. Rachel Fordham Rachel Fordham says:

    The magic of this book was twofold It took me to a completely different culture and place and made it come alive which can be hard to do when what is being described is so foreign to what I know and Sarah created a believable marriage of convenience story in modern times that didn t feel cheesy Those reasons alone are reason enough to give this book five stars

    Sarah s writing skills just keep getting better and better The imagery in this book was outstanding I felt like I was there, in the dessert, riding a camel The message of reaching out to the non believer without judgement or intolerance was very clear But I understand the author s need to bring two unequally yoked characters together for the sake of the story, but I would have liked it better if it had been by force or accident I think it would have taken a whole lotconvincing f Sarah s writing skills just keep getting better and better The imagery in this book was outstanding I felt like I was there, in the dessert, riding a camel The message of reaching out to the non believer without judgement or intolerance was very clear But I understand the author s need to bring two unequally yoked characters together for the sake of the story, but I would have liked it better if it had been by force or accident I think it would have taken a whole lotconvincing for me to marry someone that was not only unsaved, but practiced an anti Christian religion And I am positive, these differences would have causedconflict in the marriage
