A Greater Pleasure

31. No Greater Treasure : Stories of Extraordinary Women Drawn from the Talmud and Midrash by Shoshana Lepon

This is a great book, fleshing out stories of women from (as stated in the subtitle) the Talmud and Midrash. It doesn’t claim to be doing anything it isn’t, or that its embellishments are THE way things must have happened, but it brings its sources and some likely characterisations from the original sparse texts. I had come across all of the stories before, bar one, but they are, of course, all well-worth revisiting, and inspirational.
