Book - The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

I checked this book out from the library in the summer of 2006, after reading about it on someone's blog. It was quite unlike any book I had ever read, and I really enjoyed it.

“The Red Tent” is the story of Dinah, from the Bible, daughter of Jacob and Leah, and is a fictional retelling based on Biblical facts. It is told by women, for women, about women. The tent signifies the place where the women go every month, and when they bear children. The book starts off with the stories of Rachel and Leah, and then progresses to Dinah’s full life story (as envisioned by the author).

The book was engrossing and had me reading the exact passages in Genesis to see how much is from the Bible, and how much is embellished by the author. The telling of the details, the customs and cultures of the time, as well as the sisterhood that this book embodies all made for a very engaging read.

I would definitely recommend this book to any woman to read. I'd give it a 9 out of 10 stars.
