Publisher's Summary

Her name is Dinah. In the Bible her fate is merely hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the verses of the Book of Genesis that recount the life of Jacob and his infamous dozen sons. The Red Tent is an extraordinary and engrossing tale of ancient womanhood and family honour. Told in Dinah's voice, it opens with the story of her mothers, the four wives of Jacob, each of whom embodies unique feminine traits, and concludes with Dinah's own startling and unforgettable story of betrayal, grief and love. Deeply affecting and intimate, The Red Tent combines outstandingly rich storytelling with an original insight into women's society in a fascinating period of early history. Such is its warmth and candour that it is guaranteed to win the hearts and minds of women across the world.

Not just for girlies

Ignore the blurby bit. This book is not just for women. It is a great book for anybody who is interested in human history and uses a fragment of a biblical story as an interesting pivot for a real human story told fearlessly and compassionately. Moments where it pays not to be squeamish but nothing gruesome or sensational. The writing is crisp and clear and moves at a fair pace. The narration is as clear as any I have heard and does the work justice. Get it and enjoy however your chromosomes are paired up.
