I must say I do not like books that cover two subjects- Slavery and The Holocaust. For Such a Time parallels the biblical story of Esther. Each chapter begins with a text from the book of Esther and gives a clue of what the chapter is about. If you like suspense this story is for you, there were so many moments when I had to take a deep breath before I continued reading. There were even times when I put the book down for a while unable to take it! Secrets, messages, death, threats, there were so many twists and turns. Well, at least after reading the book of Esther we know that there is a happy ending. :)
