The Dovekeepers: a novel by Alice Hoffman

This historical novel traces the events at Masada, Israel leading to the end of the holdout of about 900 Jews against the Roman occupation in or about the year 70CE. The author weaves her tale through four strong women who are the dovekeepers at Masada. Who they are and how they came to be this place, Masada.  I loved the historical background, the magic and the mythology woven by the author through her eyes I felt the hearts of these wonderful characters.
