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.

Those interested in World War I and its aftermath will find Juliet Nicolson’s study of the years right after the war to be enlightening, engaging and all too often disheartening.  Great Britain suffered from a lack of collective confidence, as well as having the resources to rebound and move past the horrors of the war years.  Written in concise, but vivid prose, Nicolson paints a time of haunting history.
