  The Red Tent (1997) by Anita Diamant  
Few people would know that Joseph (he of the technicolour dreamcoat) had a sister, Dinah. Her story receives only a passing mention in Genesis and is recounted by her brothers. In The Red Tent, however, she takes centre stage.

The Red Tent is the place that women lived during their periods and childbirth and represents a female version of Old Testament events.
