I read this book though it took me awhile, but I loved every page of it. I learned so much and it made things more understandable. Everybody would benefit from this book. It made things more clear as far as culture and customs. I so wise that there was ways to bring it to more peoples attention when teaching in Gospel Doctrine.
I am still reading this book but am totally loving it. It has given me so many insights not only into the life of the women (and their male associates) but also into the scriptures themselves. Understanding the cultural and religious background of the day helps us to more fully understand the teachings of the Saviour as we put ourselves in their shoes rather than looking at the scriptures from a modern day paradigm. It is well written with beautiful colour plates and illustrations.
