The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
The Red Tent

Nadya, January 18, 2010

This powerfully written novel gives voice to the women's perspective at an important junction in human history, the shift from Earth & season based spirituality, honoring the great mother Innana, to a male dominant, 'one God' perspective. I love Diamant's attention to detail, from the removal of the household gods (Teraphim) from Laban's altar before Jacob, 'his wives & his sons, his brindled & spotted flocks' depart, to Dinah & her mother's meeting with 'the grandmother' (Abraham's second wife) Rebecca, who dwells in the sacred grove, & keeps the old ways.
Diamant's portrayal of this group of strong & diverse women gives voice to forgotten stories. & offers another view into this time of transition. Highly recommended!

Coconut Oil Miracle 4TH Edition

Nadya, April 2, 2009

This lovely book makes you want to rush out & buy coconut oil, milk & flour! Anti-viral, fungal & bacterial, the lauric acid (MCT) in the oil kills fat coated viruses inc. Hep. C, herpes, staph & strep, HIV, & influenza. Nourising to the body & brain, no wonder the long lived Polynesians who followed a Traditional diet called it "tree of life." A great read!

Nadya, January 15, 2009

This delightful tale of a quiet friendship between a lonely widow & a witch's broom that's lost most of its abilities, threatened by her unsavory neighbors' fears & suspicion, will enchant young & old. A good read about simple magic! Who doesn't want a broom like this?

Just David (Dodo Press) by Eleanor H. Porter
Just David (Dodo Press)

Nadya, September 21, 2008

One of my mom's favorite books, 'Just David' is the story of a boy who is orphaned as he & his father are returning to civilization, after spending several years in a remote mountain community. David, taught to tune himself as well as his violin, so he will sound harmonious notes in the 'orchestra of life' is taken in by a pragmatic farmer & his wife. A story of redemption & finding balance between the mundane & his pure spirit & talent; Just David remains one of my favorite reads!
