Sara Joseph's e-novel 'Esther' to be published in Mathrubhumi.com
After the novel 'Budhni' published in Mathrubhumi weekly, another novel by writer Sara Joseph is going to be published through mathrubhumi.com. Her latest novel 'Esther' will be published on the website with one chapter a day from Wednesday onwards. The novel is a quest into the life of a woman named Esther who is praised as the saviour of the Jewish community.
"There is an argument that Esther's story should not be included in the Bible. She became the queen of King Ahasuerus when Jews were being driven away from all places. But she had to hide her identity there. I felt like delving into her struggles for survival and protection of her community," Sara Joseph said regarding the background of the novel.
The empire of King Ahasuerus was very vast and extended from India to Ethiopia. Esther, who was a shepherd girl intervened when Jews were being subjected to genocide everywhere. The novel is a narrative of her life journey. Readers can visit mathrubhumi.com to read the novel chapter by chapter from Wednesday onwards.
