DescriptionHer 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 and such is its warmth and candour, it is guaranteed to win the hearts and minds of women across the world. 'If you don't read it you'll be missing out' - Eve. 'I genuinely fell into this rich and colourful world and Dinah and Leah have stayed with me as ancestors and sisters brought to life by Anita Diamant's imaginative novel' - "Maureen Lipman".

Reviews for The Red Tent
As a lover of historical fiction, I really enjoyed this book. I loved the author's creativeness in the personalities of each character and her interpretation of the Biblical facts. by Donna Meyer
The colour of red!
I highly recommend this book, especially for book clubs with all female members! I was given this book as a gift, and so glad I read it and have recommended it to all my "sisters" in Canada and Australia. It's a tough go at first, but it's worth it, and there's lots of themes to discuss. Certainly makes you look at Biblical times in a totally different light. by Maggie Swithenbank
A book for Women
This book is beautiful. It is a story of hardship, love and great loss, seen through the eyes of a young girl and her transformation into a woman. As a woman reading this book you can complete relate to Dinah's experiences growing up. I have recommended this book to my mother and my sisters because that is the central theme: sisterhood. by Lesley Dillon

I loved it!
"I absolutely loved this book. I have recommended it to so many people, including my mother who also loved it.
As a woman, I think it's fantastic to read a book that speaks of a time when women could honour their time of menses and resting by the moon.
I give it 5 stars and urge anyone to at least give a go!
