it was amazing

I LOVED this historical fiction, which connected the story of Joseph's sister Dinah with the tragic figure, Job. As always, the author takes certain liberties to make the story work, but this gal did her homework. I didn't find anything that wouldn't be plausible, and I was captured from the beginning in this tale of redemption, forgiveness, and second chances. I have always been a bit confused by the long book of Job's story, and the conversations that take place between this tortured man and his well-meaning friends. I feel like I have a better grasp now on what actually took place, and I enjoyed the fictional embellishments that really turned the tragedy into a beautiful tale.
