I just started this book and it is going to be so different!

"Their stories began with the day that my father appeared. 

Rachel came running into camp, knees flying, bellowing like a calf separated from its mother. But before anyone could scold her for acting like a wild boy, she launched into a breathless yarn about a stranger at the well, her words spilling out like water into sand."

Taken from the book The Red Tent by Anita Diamant we have the story of Dinah moving from Mesopotamia to Canaan to Egypt. Dinah brought up by four wives and a woman who became one of the most influential and powerful women of the age.

Joining Bibiliophile by the Sea on the Tuesday meme (a bit late).

I love that intro and if I hadn't read the book already, I'd be anxiously reading on -- I like this book a lot and hope that you enjoy it.

Thanks for doing us.

I loved The Red Tent. It's been so long. Wouldn't mind reading it again, if I had time.(:
