This book has an amazing story and I wish the author would follow up with more in a series that goes on to follow the family of Jacob I could listen forever both to the story this author and the narrator. I couldn't stop listening from the start.
I like this story so much.......story forgotten and simply brought to life again ..... finding a very beautiful love story.
Thanks, I enjoy it
One of our book club member picked this book. To be completely honest, I was not excited to read it. The reviews seemed to be all over the place. Good ones, and bad ones which called this book an abomination. I went into it with low expectations and ended up truly enjoying it. The story was interesting and the narrator had a very pleasant voice, which kept me captivated even more.
This book has made me reassess my life as a daughter, mother and friend - in the role I play. It has sparked a longing for celebrations, ceremonies & traditions that I will instill in my family. Love this book! So powerful!
This is a great story, and it's well narrated. I've never been interested in the bible, and this certainly doesn't make me feel religious, simply that is like to see what other interesting stories are in it. I'm curious to see how this measures up to the biblical telling of Dina's story. This is a very captivating version. My only complaint is that the narrators voice is a little too flawless and sweet for such a rough story about the trials and hardships of all women at that time, and the greater degree of challenges that this woman faced.
This story didn't grab my attention as well as others books I've listened to, but I liked that I didn't need to rewind it if I missed a part. The story kept going and made sense. By the end I wanted to stick with it. The narrator was just okay IMO.
Amazing story. Good narration. The story is fictional but based on a biblical story. The author has taken lots of liberties but the story that is told is well done.
Diamanté took the bare bones story of Dinah from Genesis 34 and created a full saga of life in biblical times. Readers should remember this is a fictional re telling and only loosely based on the biblical story. The characters are engaging. The four wives all have different personalities as do the twelve sons.
