The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
Perhaps I expected too much. The story often drags. There is more violence than I was prepared for. All in all I found it to be a depressing read, never compelling, the characters mostly drab.
The storyline is basically a good one, but seems to get lost in the family details. There were so many characters that I sometimes had to stop and sort them out.
There were very few moments of pleasure or "highs" in this book, which made it seem rather depressing
