Bookspine 365 Day 46 "The Dovekeepers" by Alice Hoffman

"The Dovekeepers" by Alice Hoffman

I never expected to purchase this book, and the cover design caught my eye. I read the back and was immediately intrigued.

"Nearly two thousand years ago, 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."

That tale alone is enough to dive deeper into history, discover lives deeper than fiction and learn about their tales. Who are the dovekeepers? What are their mysteries, secrets, lineage?
