Excerpt from Hadassah: The Star of the Persian Court
I have tried to set forth the purity of Esther 's heart and life as the cause of her great in¿uence with a heathen king, rather than her personal charms; and to show the superiority of her motive, over that of Vashti, which... was womanly pride. I have made Mordecai unselfish in his position of non-conformist obeying God's word in spirit and in letter.
Much has been said about the absence of any men tion of God in the book of Esther, in the Bible. But it seems to me that God is in every circumstance of the whole account of both these wonderful people. The fact of its being written, as it must have been, right under the eyes of the jealous Persian officials and pass their censorship would sufficiently account for the suppression of that word. But the spirit is insuppressible.
