To all the wonderful women I know - mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, nieces, wives, friends - have a wonderful day and know that you are appreciated, whether you have kids or not. And a special note of thanks to my mother, because when I come across a new word in anything I'm reading, I can still hear her voice softly encouraging me, "Sound it out..." I would not be the reader I am today without her, and my love of books is one of countless things I am blessed to share with her!
I really liked the historical details in this book and it was a well written account of Jewish lifestyles and traditions of the time - especially the unity among women. In a male dominated society one might think that the women's stories are not as intriguing, but Diamant proves quite the opposite.
Anyone else have great books about women to recommend?
