Publisher Description

In this modern classic interpretation of the biblical story of Dinah, Anita Diamant imagines the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood--the world of The Red Tent, a New York Times bestseller and the basis of the A&E/Lifetime mini-series.

Twentieth Anniversary Edition


In the Bible, Dinah's 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.

The Red Tent 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 and the valuable achievement of presenting a new view of biblical women's lives.

Ally Alarakhia ,

A great read

The Red Tent is an amazing read which I couldn't put down. As a Muslim man whose faith is very similar to a Christian or a Jews, I wanted to read a piece of fiction that would also teach me more about our beliefs and the roots of them.

With that said, this is a great book for anyone to read regardless of your beliefs. It's captivating and moving. This isn't just a book for women. It's words will move anyone and holds no exclusions to gender, religion, or beliefs.
