WeeRead: Review of The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman

Our book reviewer Jana shares her opinion of Alice Hoffman's The Dovekeepers.

When I began Alice Hoffman’s The Dovekeepers, I did not know what to expect. I was wary of immersing myself in the religion and politics of 70 C.E. and the synopsis led me to anticipate extreme violence and heartbreak. The novel delivered both in equal measure, but it also delivered characters so compelling I had a hard time putting the book down.
