This review is from: The Red Tent (Paperback)
This was one of the best books I've read in a long time. I couldn't put it down. I've always enjoyed stories out of the Bible but they're always told from the men's perspective and this is such a refreshing change. Rather than treating anything connected with womanhood as dirty, shameful or "the curse" as we're used to, it celebrates what puts women apart from men. Dinah's mothers each have a fundamental role in her transition from a girl to a woman. I found that the parts that are mentioned in the Bible have been re-told truthfully and the rest of the story fits very well in with what we've previously learnt about Jacob's family.
