Jack RiemerThis kind of book fills a real need in Jewish education… it teaches the tradition in a fresh and innovative way.

The Daughters Victorious takes the reader back into biblical times to the story of five sisters fighting for their inheritance in the promised land. Although I was already familiar with the biblical version, the book still captured my curiosity and kept me constantly wanting to know what happens next. The story follows the daughters' court case up to the very highest court in their attempt to change the traditional laws of inheritance that prevented women from owning land. There is also a romantic side to the story involving a well-respected married man and the brilliant-minded eldest daughter (polygamy was allowed in those times). The book is a fascinating look at the very earliest feminists who made great sacrifices to help their cause and to change society's attitude towards women. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in historical fiction, biblical stories, legal battles, or women's rights.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
