Cokesbury
10th Anniversary Edition
  • By Anita Diamant
$16.29
($18.00)

Best-selling novel based on the biblical story of Dinah.


A "New York Times" Bestseller
 
A decade after the publication of this hugely popular international bestseller, Picador releases the tenth anniversary edition of "The Red Tent."
 
Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that tell of her father, Jacob, and his twelve sons.
 
Told in Dinah's voice, Anita Diamant imagines the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood--the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of the mothers--Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah--the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through childhood, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah's story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate connection with the past.
 
Deeply affecting, "The Red Tent" combines rich storytelling with a valuable achievement in modern fiction: a new view of biblical women's lives.
