`A major contribution to twenty-first-century literature' Toni Morrison, Nobel Laureate and author of Beloved
In the year 70 CE, nine hundred Jews held out for months against the Roman army in ancient Israel. Only two women and five children survived.
Based on this tragic event, Alice Hoffman weaves a spellbinding story about the lives of four bold and remarkable women during desperate days of the siege of Masada, when supplies are dwindling and the Romans are drawing near.
Yael is the assassin's daughter, Revka's life has been torn apart by the Romans, Aziza has been raised as a warrior and Shirah is wise in the ways of ancient magic. All are dovekeepers, and all are keepers of secrets - about who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and whom they love.
The Dovekeepers is Alice Hoffman's masterpiece.
