The Red Tent
Why this book?
The Red Tent was my introduction to biblical fiction and made me want to look deeper into the stories of the untold women of the Bible. This sweeping tale of the four wives of Jacob and his daughter, Dinah, brings us an intimate portrait of these long-ago women. It’s a story of love, jealousy, and betrayal built upon the ancient text of Genesis, but the glowing prose and insight into their lives bring us as close to these ancient women as we are to our own mothers and daughters.
