I love books that take a small passage or incident in a well established story and build off of it. The Red Tent is such a book, telling the compelling story of Dinah, the only sister to the sons of the biblical patriarch Jacob. The book seeks to insert women and their struggles back into their rightful place in history -- and does so brilliantly. I read this book almost once a year as a reminder of what women do for each other and what we should do for ourselves.

THE HERETIC'S DAUGHTER: a novel about the Salem witch trials. A heartbreaking and beautiful read for lovers of historical fiction.
