Journal Entry 1 by fatpossum from Grinnell, Iowa USA on Saturday, July 10, 2004
This is an amazing historical novel - the imagined life of a woman mentioned in the Hebrew Scriptures, Dinah. In this story we meet again Jacob and Esau, Rachel and Leah, and Dinah's 12 brothers, including Joseph.

We hear again the story of Dinah's downfall, and the bloody revenge exacted on an entire city by the twelve brothers. This is where the story ends in the Bible.

But author Anita Diamant continues Dinah's story, a life of love and loss of forgiveness, hope and reconciliation.

This is a beautiful story, beautifully told of the power of women's relationships with one another, and the power of love.
