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.

Siobhan Rainey ,

End was a bit rushed.

The latter years of her life seemed a bit rushed, but a powerful read anyhow.

Loved it!

My book club picked this book for our monthly reading. It was fantastic! I have read the bible multiple times. This was a nice side story. The author obviously did a ton of research. Great book.

What a surprise

I didn’t think I would love this book as much as I did. Dinah is an amazing woman and put up with so much in her lifetime. I highly recommend this
