It was a book written from the perspective of women from the Old Testament, a chapter for one woman.
I remember loving but cannot remember the title and google is no help.

I think I was about 11/12 when I read it and it might possibly have been written by a Sarah someone.
Thanks in advance!!

What's the approximate year of publishing OP? Might help us to narrow it down - even if you can just provide a decade.

The Red Tent? Anita Diamant I think...

I love the red tent but this was definitely a YA
I think I read it in about 1985 and my bet would be that it was published in the 70s
