The red tent by anita diamant
religious historical FICTION, 352 PP
With the exception of one religion class in college, I admit my knowledge of biblical times is limited. The Red Tent is not only a crash course on Dinah’s story, but a compelling story of female relationships. Red tents still exist today, or at least the concept of them – women coming together to support one another in a circle of friendship and sisterhood. In some respects, book clubs could be considered red tents. A once a month gathering of women for food, drink, and discussions. A perfect choice to celebrate Women’s History Month in March.
For historical fiction also set in Biblical times with women at the center: The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman tells the story of the Masada, Jews holding off the Roman armies for months in the Middle Eastern desert.

I also post book recommendations and tips and ideas for book clubs. I’m on social media, too. On my Facebook page, I post deals I find on Kindle specials ($1.99, $2.99, etc.) for books I recommend. A great way to add to your e-library with minimal costs.
