The first 1/3 didn't really grab me probably because I've read lots of stories set from that biblical desert perspective, but I really liked it as it went on.
What stuck out to me most about this book was the relationship and hidden stories of ordinary women carried from one generation to the next. It made me think about the special bond I feel for my own grandmother, aunties,mother, sister, close women friends.
It was also good in describing the passages, maturing, and growth that happen over a lifetime of experiences. It was good right to the end. It makes me want to have more children.
