A New York Times Bestseller
"By giving a voice to Dinah, one of the silent female characters in Genesis, the novel has struck a chord with women who may have felt left out of biblical history. It celebrates mothers and daughters and the mysteries of the life cycle." —The Los Angeles Times
"An intense, vivid novel . . . It is tempting to say that The Red Tent is what the Bible would be like if it had been written by women, but only Diamant could have given it such sweep and grace."
—The Boston Globe
"Diamant vividly conjures up the ancient world of caravans, shepherds, farmers, midwives, slaves, and artisans. . . . Her Dinah is a compelling narrator that has timeless resonance."
—Merle Rubin, The Christian Science Monitor
