    Description

    In 70 AD, nine hundred Jews held out for months against armies of Romans ona mountain outside the Judean desert, Masada. Two women and five children survived. Based on this tragic event, The Dovekeepers is a Spellbinding tale of four extraordinary women in the desperate days of the siege. Each has come to Masada by a different path.

    Yael's mother died in childbirth, and her father, an expert assassin, never forgave her for that death. Revka, a baker's wife, watched the brutal murder of her daughter: her young grandsons are rendered mute by what they have witnessed. Aziza is a warrior's daughter, a fearless rider and marksman who finds passion with a fellow soldier. Shirah is wise in the ways of ancient magic, a woman with uncanny insight and power and as loyal as she is dangerous.

    All are dovekeepers, and all are keeping secrets – about who they are, where they come from, their families, and their loves.

    One of the best Books ever

    I picked up this item while flipping through the Best seller and award winning lists. Jewish history has always intrigued me and I was not disappointed at all.
    In fact this is one of the best Books I have read in a very long time. The writing, story telling and the way the lives of the protagonists are interlinked makes for an exceptional read.
    Not light reading by any means, but a definite must-buy for serious readers.
