All are dovekeepers, and all are keepers of secrets - about who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and whom they love. There is Yael, the assassin's daughter whose heartbreak leads to her true path in the ruins of the desert; Revka, the baker's wife who loses her dearest treasure on earth and yet finds the strength to protect her family; Aziza, the warrior's beloved who leads a secret life not even those closest to her could imagine; and Marit, beautiful witch of Moab, a woman as loyal as she is dangerous.Hide synopsis

This is such an intriguing novel. It was based on a period and subject matter that is unusual to be written about and it is done so well that it takes you right there. Alice Hoffman is such an enjoyable author and she writes about many unexpected subjects. I recommend this book very highly.
I read this book not knowing about Masada and after finishing it I had to know more. It is the story of four different women, different ages and different backgrounds and how they wound up in Masada. Couldn't put the book down as I love history and the book was so descriptive of the living at this time in history. All the women's lives entwine with each other and make for a great book. I see it was on Oprah's book list and may be made into a movie. Great reading!
