The story of Dinah, a tragic character from the Bible whose great love, a prince, is killed by her brother, leaving her alone and pregnant. The novel traces her life from childhood to death, in the process examining sexual and religious practices of the day, and what it meant to be a woman.
  1. 120
    La servante écarlate par Margaret Atwood (wosret, Kaelkivial)
    Kaelkivial: Both stories of strong women who resist (in one form or another) the system that holds them down. Both books fairly fast paced and gripping; acts of violence and loss scattered throughout.
  2. 41
    Ahab's Wife: Or the Star-Gazer par Sena Jeter Naslund (sweetbug)
    sweetbug: Both books take minor female characters from great works and create a larger story for them. The two books also deal with similar themes including women who challenge gender rolls and the relationships between mothers (or surrogate mothers) and daughters.
  3. 20
    L'odyssée de Pénélope par Margaret Atwood (Utilisateur anonyme)
    Utilisateur anonyme: The two novels convey the same idea of reclaiming the story of a marginal woman from a great male narrative, telling the story from a new, feminine perspective.
  4. 20
    Tsippora par Marek Halter (jordantaylor)
  5. 10
    Miss Garnet's Angel par Salley Vickers (KayCliff)
    KayCliff: Both are novels featuring Old Testament stories.
  6. 10
    The Garden of Ruth par Eva Etzioni-Halevy (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: The Red Tent and The Garden of Ruth provide female-centered interpretations of Biblical stories. These books are full of political and familial drama, centered in the early ages of Judaism.
  7. 00
    The Cave Dreamers par Jeanne Williams (juniperSun)
    juniperSun: both have women passing on their spirituality/goddess knowledge secretly
  8. 00
    Le Sang des Fleurs par Anita Amirrezvani (elbakerone)
    elbakerone: Another beautifully written historical fiction with a focus around mother daughter relationships.
  9. 11
    Mary, Called Magdalene par Margaret George (meggyweg)
  10. 00
    Wisdom's Daughter: A Novel of Solomon and Sheba par India Edghill (BookshelfMonstrosity)

    In the Shadow of the Ark par Anne Provoost (jordantaylor)

This is the retelling of the Biblical story of Dinah and her mother's Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah. The book focuses on the relationship between the women and their daily routines. When Dinah falls in love with prince Shechem he takes her to bed and the bargains for a marriage. After the marriage, Dinah's brothers sneak into the town and kill every male they can find. Dinah curses her family, and travels to Egypt with her mother-in-law.

This was an engaging, interesting and dynamic book. It was well paced and very interesting. I found the relationship and culture between the women to be fascinating. I would love to read more from this author. Overall, highly recommended. ( )

The Red Tent is the story of Dinah, the younger sister of the biblical Joseph and his brothers. If you're looking for a biblically accurate account, don't read this book-it will make you mad.
The story telling is spectacular, I didn't want to put it down. I fell in love with the characters right away, even though most of them are painted in a very negative light. If anything could be written to make you angry with or disappointed in God or His people, it was done in this story. Every kind of injustice, every kind of vile, horrific thing that could happen to a woman, happens in this story.
I enjoyed the historical and cultural aspects of the story, and again the story telling itself was magical, but I kept catching myself saying "That's not what happened!" etc....
This is a book of fiction based on some facts and as long as you go into it knowing that, you'll probably enjoy it. ( )

Dinah, daughter of Leah by Jacob and sister of Joseph, beloved of Shechem or victim depending on the translation, appears in the Bible as a reason of vengeance for Simeon and Levi and little more. Here in this magnificent book, Anita Diamant imagines her story from birth to death and with it the stories motherhood, sisterhood, and the bonds of womanhood in a patriarchal society. Gorgeous prose creates a deeply drawn world that is easy to sink into. Absolutely stunning. ( )

Slow start...many characters, a bit difficult to keep track, but about 40% in it took off. I like Diamant's idea of exploring Dinah's story. Of course, nobody knows, but it would be nice to think this is it. Interesting interactions between the women when in the Red Tent. ( )

The Red Tent instantly drew me in from its very first paragraph. The narrative voice, that of Dinah, reminded me a lot of that of Margaret Atwood’s wonderful Penelopiad which I read last year. It was strong but slightly melancholy and conveyed the same idea of reclaiming the story of a marginal woman from a great male narrative, telling the story from a new, feminine perspective and revealing what ‘really’ happened.

The red tent of the title is the separate tent set aside for the women where they go while menstruating to keep apart from the men. The Red Tent then is a very appropriate title as the book focused almost exclusively on feminine concerns: becoming a woman, giving birth and finding a husband. I appreciated this insight into their secret world and I liked the idea of telling a masculine story to recentre it around the women.

If you want to understand any woman you must first ask about her mother and then listen carefully. Stories about food show a strong connection. Wistful silences demonstrate unfinished business. The more a daughter knows the details of her mother’s life—without flinching or whining—the stronger the daughter.
The men clustered around the baby and placed the tools of the scribe into his little hands. His fingers curled around new reed brushes, and he grasped a circular dish upon which his inks were mixed. He waved a scrap of papyrus in both hands like a fan.
Re-nefer scoured the markets for ... a perfect box in which to put his brushes. She commissioned a sculptor to carve a slate for mixing ink.
He was captivated by the sights of the journey ... he directed my eyes at the sails in the wind, at the harmony of the rowers' oars ... a stand of papyrus that looked like a field of copper in the setting sun.
Maybe you guessed that there was more to me than the voiceless cipher in the text. Maybe you heard it in the music of my name: the first vowel high and clear, as when a mother calls to her child at dusk; the second sound soft, for whispering secrets on pillows. Dee-nah.
