Who: Anita Diamant
Why: Another book that I own but listened to the audiobook instead of reading. I didn’t want to get out of the car. This Old Testament story of Jacob, told my his four wives, was amazing. I looked up scholarly articles about this book after I listened to it. A wonderful read about ancient women’s rites – and lack of rights, if you will. Herbalism, paganism, midwifery – it’s all there.
