As I understand it, the Book of Esther is one of only two books in the Hebrew Bible that does not mention God. It is the straightforward story of how Jews were threatened with genocide but were able to turn the tables and kill those who would kill them.

I read a book about Esther, called, near as I can remember, Esther, when I was in grade 7 or so. Got it out of my (catholic) school library. And I can find no sign of it on Amazon. Would have been published in the 80s or early 90s. Too bad.
