The Dovekeepers
The Dovekeepers: A Novel | Alice Hoffman
Over five years in the writing, The Dovekeepers is Alice Hoffmans most ambitious and mesmerizing novel, a tour de force of imagination and research, set in ancient Israel. In 70 C.E., nine hundred Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. According to the ancient historian Josephus, two women and five children survived. Based on this tragic and iconic event, Hoffmans novel is a spellbinding tale of four extraordinarily bold, resourceful, and sensuous women, each of whom has come to Masada by a different path. Yaels mother died in childbirth, and her father, an expert assassin, never forgave her for that death. Revka, a village bakers wife, watched the horrifically brutal murder of her daughter by Roman soldiers; she brings to Masada her young grandsons, rendered mute by what they have witnessed. Aziza is a warriors daughter, raised as a boy, a fearless rider and an expert marksman who finds passion with a fellow soldier. Shirah, born in Alexandria, is wise in the ways of ancient magic and medicine, a woman with uncanny insight and power. The lives of these four complex and fiercely independent women intersect in the desperate days of the siege. All are dovekeepers, and all are also keeping secretsabout who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and whom they love. The Dovekeepers is Alice Hoffmans masterpiece.

It took me a while to get invested in this book—really, until I got to the second characters POV, but I‘m glad that I stuck with it. This is ostensibly the story of the Siege of Masada in 73 CE, but really it‘s the story of four women, and the Siege happens around them. I really loved the main characters, the magical touches, and the lyrical, lovely writing...those elements make up for the slow-burn plot.

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Butterfinger I never knew about Masada till I read Weight of Ink. I'm adding it to my tbr list. 9mo
sprainedbrain @Butterfinger I hadn‘t even heard of Weight of Ink, but it looks interesting. Did you like it? 9mo
C.Perone This is one of the few Hoffman novels I've never felt compelled to read 9mo

sprainedbrain @C.Perone it‘s the first one of hers I‘ve read! 9mo
C.Perone @sprainedbrain Oh you're in for a surprise then!!!! From your description sounds like it wasn't one of her better ones. Off the top of my head I would recommend Marriage of Opposites should you want to read more of her books (edited) 9mo
sprainedbrain @C.Perone thank you! Stacked. 😃 9mo
Butterfinger @sprainedbrain I really did. It was one of those books that have two timelines 1700s London and present day. It refers to Masada. It astounded me that those families killed themselves. I think 900 people died. 9mo
TheBookHippie One of my best reads last year -absolute love. 9mo
TheBookHippie It‘s the only one I‘ve read of her. @C.Perone 9mo
sprainedbrain @Butterfinger I love dual timelines... definitely going to check it out. I didn‘t know anything about Masada before this book, but I sure did a lot of researching while I was reading it. Truly horrible! 9mo
C.Perone @TheBookHippie The Marriage of Opposites? 9mo
Crazeedi @Butterfinger I ❤❤the weight of ink!! 9mo
Crazeedi @sprainedbrain yes weight of ink was good 9mo
sprainedbrain @Crazeedi definitely stacking it! 9mo
TheBookHippie @C.Perone Oh, no sorry, this one tagged: the dove keepers -because of the history part. Absolutely loved it and have meant to look up her other books. 9mo
TheBookHippie @sprainedbrain I picked up the book because I knew the history! Isn‘t that crazy. I did love this book! 9mo
C.Perone @TheBookHippie Yeah, lol, I wasn't sure which you meant; but A Marriage of Opposites was amazing. I highly recommend it (edited) 9mo
sprainedbrain @TheBookHippie I‘ve been looking at some of her others and she seems to do a lot of history. 😃 9mo

1 last book to finish #LitsyRC and 4/5 reading challenges- didn't finish Mount TBR but I'm fine with that. I have mixed feelings about reading challenges after my 1st yr of completing them. I had a blast organizing and planning books but I looked over my list of books read for the yr & realized I didn't love any of them. Maybe RCs aren't to blame for that but I have a ton of books I am dying to read & I am holding off to finish RCs.

Betty That's why I decided not to do any challenges next year. Makes me feel like I'm back in school with a dozen mandatory homework assignments. I'll read what I want when I want! So Be It! 2y
DivineDiana @Betty I am leaning the same way! It‘s enough with my Book Club reads being chosen for me! 2y
