The Dovekeepers

The Dovekeepers - Alice Hoffman I was very disappointed in this book. I love the idea of an historical novel about the siege of Masada, but this novel's anachronisms and heavy-handed feminism just don't cut it for me. If you want to learn about 1st century Judaism while reading a good novel, this isn't the book for you. But if you like strong female characters and don't care about historical accuracy, you may just love this book.
