Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman.. Not your usual cup of Hoffman, whom I think of as more of a gothicker (in the best sense). Here she stretches her range into the realm of the truly historical novel. Marvelous!

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Alice Hoffman's "The Dovekeepers'' is a splendid entertainment, a harrowing, thrilling, feminist historical novel fueled to fever pitch by a rich imagination."

The Boston Globe

"If a world of strong women and their complex relationships with one another doesn't draw you into Alice Hoffman's brilliant new novel, "The Dovekeepers," read it for Hoffman's fine sense of narrative, history and detail as she shares the story of four women who come by various paths to Masada."

The St. Louis Post Dispatch
