Surely, history has not been as kind to Queen Vashti as it has been to Queen Esther. Queen Vashti has not been given her true merits.  It is not the intent of this writer to compare these two great women of the Bible.  However, this author will write on behalf of Queen Vashti so that others will come to view her greatness in life.  Queen Vashti is mentioned in the Bible in the Book of Esther and she played a major role in the lives of the Jewish People. However, she was definitely not Jewish, but through her role, she aided the Jewish nation in their quest for freedom.  In fact, it is truly believed by the author, although the Bible does not say it, that Queen Vashti was indeed a Black queen. The author also believes that Queen Vashti was a God Fearing beautiful Black queen.


      Although Queen Vashti, was only mentioned in 15 verses in the whole book of Esther, which has a total of 10 chapters, the lessons taught are immeasurable.  Bestowing upon Queen Vashti, the honor that is due her, this book will serve the purpose of presenting to the world, Queen Vashti's lessons for living a good life, especially for all women, when circumstances are against us.  Let the author mention here that although it is truly believed that Queen Vashti was a Black queen, the lessons left by her are relevant ones that any woman can use to make her life much better in this world.  It seems as if Queen Vashti knew that we would need to hear from her on this subject.  It is truly fitting at this time to say "Thank you, Queen Vashti, Beloved Black Queen."


         This book will aid anyone seeking a more productive, fulfilling and happy life.
