I 💜💜 this book. The story of Dinah & the wives of Jacob are brought to life so beautifully. The amount of depth & beauty that Diamant draws out of a few throw away lines in Genesis is amazing. The women of history & myth so often are obscured that it is wondrous to see them delineated here as strong, stubborn, complex, & devastating. They ate forces to be reckoned with & more than a match for the men on the sidelines of their lives.

Overall I liked it. There were a few instances in the book where it felt a little awkward but once I go through it, it was fine. It was interesting reading about that time in such detail. It definitely wasn't what I expected.
