With all due respect,I have but a minute of study compared to you but I must write these points from Me’am Lo’ez
1.Esther was the adoptive daughter of a tsadik and was raised as such. She was not a simple girl, nor a young woman according to some who say as old as 85 years old.
2. Knowing that she came from the house of the most famed Jew of shushan already put her at great risk of being killed.
3.She certainly did NOT bow but instead wore for the first time her most royal garments when Bravely going to see the king, who had not asked for her for 30 days.
4. You failed to mention that Daniel was one of trusted messengers between Esther and Mordecai.
5.Esther argued profusely to Mordecai that she was not the one to save her people.Mordecai had to remind her that her crown / position would not protect her.
6.Esther was rewarded by giving birth to the next king ,Darius the Second who finally ordered the reconstruction of the holy temple.
7.Esther wanted the book to be named for Mordecai Reply
