What other readers are saying about this title:
This was a fascinating story about a girl named Dinah, very briefly mentioned in the Old Testament. Though it contains Biblical characters, it is a novel and not a story about religion. It is more a story about growing up, the importance of family, what can happen to your dreams, and unexpected turns along the way. I found myself swept up in the story of Dinah and anxious to keep reading and find out what happens to her. I would highly recommend The Red Tent to girls who like historical ficiton and a more mature writing style.

What a wonderful book. After reading it I reviewed Old Testement and it’s amazing how Diamant was able to weave such a beautiful tale out of such little information. A must read for all women, religious or not.

It was a little long, but I had to stick with it also to see what happens. If you have seen JOSEPH AND THE TECHNICOLOR DREAMDCOAT, you will find names and familes familiar.....but so much more insight in the circumstances of their time. Diamant is very eloquent with her words.

I read this story a while back, I found it to be a very good read. It was a little long in some parts, but others you really wanted more. I felt the ending was a cop out though, like the author wasn’t sure how to end it. I wouldn’t say that it is a must read, but it was a very interesting story for a character who is only in a quick snippet of the Bible.

Wonderfully written! It really did seem as if we were listening to Dinah remembering the events of her life. The author also did a great job of putting biblical events into the context of the culture of the time.
