Intensely moving . . . The red tent is a place of seclusion for menstruating women, forbidden to men; Diamant leads the reader into this storyteller's haven, creating a riveting tale of love, betrayal and revenge without compromising her historical facts.
I was hooked . . . It was riveting – the wives of Jacob telling biblical stories from their perspective . . . it's just wonderful
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
An affecting tale of betrayal, grief and love
