The Red Tent

 Great Historical Fiction: An epic tale based on the biblical character Dinah. It's complex and moving and provides a lot of insight into being a female in ancient times.

Book Review

(by- Linda )

One of my favorite books and one of the few books I have re-read and loved again. Unfortunately, most books are not as engaging the second time. However, the passion throughout this story and the way this talented author brings the ancient world to life are timeless and ever-engaging.

It's told in Dinah's voice and gives the reader a glimpse of the traditions of being a woman in ancient times. The title refers to the tent where the women go when menstruating or giving birth; Women love their time here. It's a space where they bond and share stories of raising children and living with their husbands.

Historical fiction is my favorite genre, and this is a good one!
