Henpicked’s book of the month for January 2018…
Well, it looks like we were all probably a little too busy with Christmas to read Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. Please follow the link and let us know what you think of it, there’s still plenty of time.
This month’s book is The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, an international bestseller and the sort of book that you just won’t want to finish!
‘Her name is Dinah. In the Bible her fate is merely hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the verses of the Book of Genesis that recount the life of Jacob and his infamous dozen sons.
The Red Tent is an extraordinary and engrossing tale of ancient womanhood and family honour. Told in Dinah’s voice, it opens with the story of her mothers – the four wives of Jacob – each of whom embodies unique feminine traits, and concludes with Dinah’s own startling and unforgettable story of betrayal, grief and love. Deeply affecting and intimate, The Red Tent combines outstandingly rich storytelling with an original insight into women’s society in a fascinating period of early history and such is its warmth and candour, it is guaranteed to win the hearts and minds of women across the world.’
