I recently just finished reading The Red Tent, and I loved it so much that I just had to share it with each of you! This book is by talented Anita Diamant. This is the first novel I have read by her, and I can say that I will definitely be seeking out her other titles.
The Red Tent takes place in Biblical times and features the story of Dinah, daughter of Leah and Jacob. While her father and twelve brothers certainly play a role in the story it is mainly hers, and that of her mothers: Leah, Rachel, Zipplah and Bilah. The Bible only mentions Dinah briefly, but author Diamant takes us on a journey to explore the possibilities of this fascinating woman.
The writing of Anita Diamant had me enchanted from the very first page. It had a feeling of mystery to it, and the words flow beautifully from page to page. It keeps you reading to the very end and longing for more. I feel that even someone who is not interested in the Bible would find this story moving, and I definitely recommend it. And if you don’t believe me, just check out the reviews on Amazon! Happy reading to you all!
