Okay, this was a very interesting book about a subject that only has one chapter in the book of Genesis. Dinah was never mentioned again in the Bible. What I found interesting was the way that your period was looked upon back then. I mean, now it is like, oh crap, how many days is this going to ruin my life this month. And when my daughter started a few years ago, age 11, she was like "Oh great, this sux." However, those women back then make it a celebration (although I can think of once or twice when it was a celebration to me too!!) They took 3 days off and had people wait on them and they actually rested. Now-a-days it is even known at times as "the curse."

Anyway, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.
