About the Series: Grace in Exile
The historical fiction trilogy Grace in Exile is set in the ancient Near East cities of Babylon, Susa, and Jerusalem from the sixth to fourth centuries BCE. These stand-alone novels feature the biblical characters Queen Esther, the wise man Daniel, priest-scribe Ezra, cupbearer Nehemiah, and the prophets Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. These Jewish exiles rise to prominence during the reigns of the Babylonian kings Nebuchadnezzar and Nabonidus, and the Persian kings Cyrus, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes. Each protagonist is forced to navigate the deadly corridors of political intrigue, religious intolerance, and xenophobia, as they grow their faith in their Jewish beliefs and Yahweh Almighty. To stay alive they are forced to lean into the Lord of hosts and trust his loving-kindness toward them and their people, while they stay true to the God of Israel during harrowing times in Esther’s Song; Babylon: Center of the World; and Jerusalem Bound!
