Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob, narrates this novel, explaining how the women of her family had their own religious practices that ran counter to the beliefs the men upheld. Through Dinah's voice, this novel imagines the women's stories that the Bible doesn't tell. To call it provocative and rebellious is an understatement; it pushes against patriarchy and suggests an ancient and empowering role for women and women's sexuality.
From one of America's most famous lawyers and author of "The New York Times" bestseller "How to Argue and Win Every Time" comes a new American classic: a legal thriller, a love story, a visionary work that examines deeply our values of life and death. This is a remarkable first novel that penetrates deeply into the very roots of our lives and our system, that relentlessly probes life, death, justice, and, at last, the infinite power of love.
