This is book is loosely based on the story of Dinah from the bible. It is not really a religious book at all although religion is touched on a little but mostly the discussion surrounds the idols of the women rather than the biblical God.

I do not consider myself to be a feminist but this book really makes me proud to be a woman. What an amazing story of strength, love and triumph amongst persecution, feuds and other trials and tribulations. This book was a pleasant surprise!
