About the book


This book is important in two respects: the glorification of feminine power and the use religious symbols to affirm the power of women. 

Sue Monk Kidd interestingly uses religious allusions in her novel, as she characterizes with names taken from Judeo-Christian account of ancient history. 

Conclusively, the novel not only uses religious references but also calls for a revolt against the propagation of misogyny in the name of religion. This book is equally important for the students of history, religion and women studies.
