The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman

With twenty-two adult novels already published, fans and new readers will not be disappointed by The Dovekeepers. Inspired by the Roman siege of Masada in 70 CE, Hoffman weaves a tale of four women from different walks of life. All are dovekeepers and all are independent, complex women. Powerful and mysterious, the women form a relationship based on fierce loyalty as they attempt to survive the ravages of war. Lauded as Hoffman's masterpiece, it is well worth the read.
