The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman

Alice Hoffman is known for her novels that are dosed with magic and surrealism. But in The Dovekeepers, she breaks away from the world of fantasy and retells the story of the Romans’ siege of Masada in 70 C.E., during which all but a handful of the 900 Jewish defenders were slaughtered. Using the voices of four separate women, who intersect in surprising ways, the story unfolds into one of determined strength, unity, and faith. With an almost biblical feel, Hoffman’s new novel has a cadence and depth that makes it feel timeless—so perhaps there is a bit of magic in her telling after all.
