I finish reading this book on the airplane to Japan. Customs and rituals described in this book were quite interesting. The one particular ritual was actually not just interesting but also terrified me a bit. Because I am not familiar with Bible, I tried not forgetting that this book was fictional and a totally separate piece from Bible. I enjoyed reading Dinah's adult life a lot. This book told me that you shouldn't judge other culture/tradition by one event. Some values/traditions of others are very different from yours, but there is always something that you can learn.

This was a gift (RABCK) from imuzak12.Another new author and an interesting topic. I will probably read this first out of the four you have given me. Thanks once again.

I really enjoyed this book.
It gave me an insight into the world of women and other societies.
The idea of a RED TENT is so interesting.
I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in other cultures and also women's studies.
There is a religious factor too but it is not predominant at all.

I received this book from my daughter, who is a doula in the Netherlands. She gave it to me when she was visiting Canada in the summer. I could not put this book down. It really spoke to me about the relationships of mothers and daughters, sisters and friends. It also make me go back to my bible and read it with new eyes. This was a beautiful book that touched my heart in so many ways. Sometimes I cried, other times I was angry, but always I loved the women in the Red Tent, especially Dinah.
