The music of Palestine opens this historical novel about the tribe of Jacob in the Book of Genesis. Told by Dinah, daughter of Jacob, The Red Tent--the place where women are sequestered during their cycles of birthing, menses, and sickness--takes us inside the lives of these early Jewish families. Carol Bilger narrates with a warmth and melodiousness that echo the rhythm of the musical interludes that separate chapters. The story told by Diamant is dramatic, but Bilger never overplays her reading. Instead, she allows the story to shine. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
