Anita Diamant is able to procure an image of Biblical times through a woman's eyes like no other. Her language reads seamlessly, and leaves no point uncovered. This book should not go unread by anyone. A remarkable work of art, and my favorite book!
After the introductions, which can always be a bit tedious, this book is incredibly engaging.
Ms. Diamonte artfully weaves intimate tales of the men and women of biblical times. But the focus is on the women while the men are only distractions.
Pure and simple relationships portrayed here in the voice of Dinah stirs longing in the reader for passion and connection in one's life.
By the close of the story of Dinah, one is saddened yet satisfied that it has come to the right end.
I was left wondering how the story would have come out had a single event in Dinah's life been different.
