Set in ancient Israel, The Dovekeepers tells the story of four extraordinary women; their struggles, secrets, loves and eventual fate while living at Masada in the Judean desert, where nine hundred Jews died trying to fight the Roman army.  A thoroughly researched novel, The Dovekeepers is rich in detail and written with Hoffman’s usual grace tinged with a pervasive sense of mystery and unyielding destiny.
