    Passionate, earthy, deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable contribution to modern fiction: a vibrant new perspective of female life in the age that shaped present day civilization and values.

    If you like The Red Tent, try The Harlot by the Side of the Road, a recounting of some of the most startling and explicit writings from The Old Testament.

    Overall

    ?The Red Tent? was masterfully written by Ms. Diamant. She wove a superb story using biblical characters in such a way that if you grew up reading the scriptures or knew anything about the Bible you would know the only things close to the truth in her story are the historical locations she mentions (hence, the word fiction). You would be spellbound by the visions she creates and thoroughly entertained. Anita has fictionally answered some questions that might have been asked about Isaac. What, if any would be the effect of being offered as a sacrifice? We know that Isaac along with his father, Abraham knew that God would provide. In our human state without faith in God that sort of trauma might leave a lasting scar on a child such as stuttering speech. Did Joseph run all of Egypt? Of course he did because he was blessed by God, but in this fiction Joseph is given Diana's son's creditof being a skilled manager.

    If you can separate what you know about the Bible and enjoy the story you could see that this is not a recount of history but a story about people you may have heard or read about in the Bible. If we accept fictional work about the Bible that could be proven possible by scripture, why is it so hard to accept fictional work about Bible characters that is proven as false by the scriptures?

    If you think Anita is writing about something she believes to be real and your faith will be shaken don't read this book. If you have an open mind enjoy this book you will not be disappointed.
