    Epub The Red Tent MOBI â The Red Epub / Ñ g couture.co.uk tent book, The Red book, The Red Tent EpubOne of my favorite books ever I believe this is the 4th time I've purchased this book because whenever I lend it out it never comes back and I NEED to keep a copy in my own collection Despite all the accolades from different religious reviewers this book is relevant to many feminists who have been frustrated with the eras

    Epub The Red Tent MOBI â The Red Epub / Ñ g couture.co.uk tent book, The Red book, The Red Tent EpubI was looking forward to reading this one as a number of my friends liked it I did not like the style of writing and I did not like the lack of character development I read about 75 pages and found myself pushing forward and that is not what a book should do Maybe if you know your bible really really well it may be different but I found it moved very fast from character to character The writing style was simplistic for my taste and I just did not like it Gave it to a friend and hopefully she will have better luck Can't win them all

    Epub The Red Tent MOBI â The Red Epub / Ñ g couture.co.uk tent book, The Red book, The Red Tent EpubThis moving and compelling story brings the lives glimpsed through the verses of the Old Testament into sharp colourful and sometimes shocking focus It knocks the sugar coating off the West end Jospeh by showing the selling of their brother into slavery as the very least of the crimes of Jacob and his 11 other sons and yet because the book is told through the eyes of the women who despite the harshness and cruelty of their ancient land find comfort strength and joy in friendship rituals and celebrations and in the simple acts of making and caring for their families there is always hope and a direct connection with the modern reader I learned a lot from this book about the realities of the world of the Old Testament by the skilful way that the author shifts the focus from the events we already know about and focuses instead on what is going on just off to the si

    Epub The Red Tent MOBI â The Red Epub / Ñ g couture.co.uk tent book, The Red book, The Red Tent EpubThe Red Tent by Anita Diamant is a novel which caught my eye in a bookshop many moons ago listed in the back of my mind as a 'To Read' and never actually came to read it until roughly 12 years later as a result of it slipping in and out of recallThe novel is the story of Dinah the only daughter born to the famous Jacob of many sons of the Bible and the musical his four wives all apparently siblings and Dinah's entire life story from when her father met her mothers to her eventual deathThough Dinah is a Biblical character not much was known about her apart from one main biblical story around which Diamant weaves the most dramatic section of narrative so in general Diamant was free to build the picture of Dinah she choseIt is beautifully done In many ways The Red Tent is a very female very feminist novel The Red Tent itself being the place the women retreated to from the general family camp whilst they bled at the new moon There is a huge focus on sexual awake
