Teaser Tuesdays

Miz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us 2 sentences from somewhere on that page. Be careful not to include spoilers.
You also need to share the title and author of the book that you're getting the "teaser" from... that way people can add it to their TBR lists if they like the teaser you've given.

This week's teaser comes from The Red Tent by Anita Diamant. This is a work of historical fiction that retells the story of Dinah from the book of Genesis, Chapter 34 (The Rape of Dinah). Dinah does not speak in the Bible and in this story Diamant gives a voice to Dinah and the women who surround her.

"In the red tent we knew that death was the shadow of birth, the price women pay for the honor of giving life. Thus, our sorrow was measured. "

Part One, Chapter Two, p.48
