A young orphaned girl is taken from her adopted fathers home into King Ahasuerus harem. While her adopted Father, Mordecai, spends day after day concerned for her well being, she meets with favour from Hegai the keeper of the Kings harem. The King also favours her above all others and sets the royal crown on her head and makes her queen instead of Vashti.
In those days as Mordecai was sitting at the Kings gate, he discovered a treasonous plot against the Kings life and made it known to him by the mouth of Esther. And it was recorded in the book of the chronicles in the presence of the King.
