Summary
In 70 AD, nine hundred Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on a mountain outside the Judean desert, Masada. Two women and five children survived. Based on this tragic event, The dovekeepers is a spellbinding tale of four extraordinary women in the desperate days of the siege. Each has come to Masada by a different path: Yael's mother died in childbirth, and her father, an expert assassin, never forgave her for that. Revka, a baker's wife, watched the brutal murder of her daughter; her young grandsons are rendered mute by what they have witnessed. Aziza is a warrior's daughter, a fearless rider and marksman who finds passion with a fellow soldier. Shirah is wise in the ways of ancient magic, a woman with uncanny insight and as loyal as she is dangerous
