Books Worth Reading / This book started my love for Judy Blume. I gave it to my niece on her 10th or 11th birthday- she graduates from high school this year- and it remains one of her favorites as well.
10 Absolutely Incredible Women In Historical Fiction
Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob, narrates this novel, explaining how the women of her family had their own religious practices that ran counter to the beliefs the men upheld.
