Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at
in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar
chapters of the Book of Genesis that are about her father,
Jacob, and his dozen sons. Told in Dinah's voice, this
novel reveals the traditions and turmoils of ancient
womanhood - the world of the red tent. It begins with the
story of her mothers - Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah -
the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts
that are to sustain her through a damaged youth, 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, immediate connection.
