Have you noticed that I have started titling my book challenge posts as Book Report instead of a Book Review. I decided I am more of a Book Report kind of gal. Do not think I do so well writing book reviews, I really think there is a difference. I have read the fifth book out of six for the reading challenge over at Beth Fish Reads.
The book needed to have a "type of house" in the title. My good friend the Happy Mrs Csuggested The Red Tent by Anita Diamant.
I am so glad that she reminded me of this book it is one that I wanted to read previously but had forgotten about. I love historical books and this one includes actual people from the old testament so even better for me. The story is told by Dinah the only daughter of Jacob, who's mother was Leah. The story starts when Jacob takes the daughters of Laban as his wives. It continues with their move outside the city of Shechem in Canaan where the king's son takes Dinah and wants to then marry her. The city agrees to the requests of Jacob and his sons but then the brothers of Dinah kill the men of the city and take Dinah back. That I believe is where Dinah does not enter into the story any longer in the book of Genesis. This book continues on with Dinah's story told by herself to the end of her life. A very enjoyable read.
Only one more book for the challenge. I need to find a book with "something you'd find on a calendar" in the title. Have a wonderful holiday! Blessings from our home in the woods.
I am a mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls. I love to sew, paint, garden and enjoy many different crafts. Ladybug is actually my Scottie's name and she gives my hubs and I many hours of pleasure. I dream up many ideas of which a few I manage to make happen. My husband is very talented and has a few hobbies of his own so he puts up with my many hobbies and the mess they leave behind. I cannot say this blog is about anything in particular except our love of home, family and friends with a few interesting things sprinkled in here and there.
