Welcome back! We had our first snow in Toronto yesterday and so today, we have the perfect read for you to curl up on your couch with while the snow makes for a picturesque holiday season! Marketing Assistant, Loretta recommends Alice Hoffman’s The Dovekeepers. There has been plenty of talk about this book, but you can just by hearing her speak, how touching this novel truly is. After the video, read her review. Enjoy!
It is rare to encounter a character with a wisdom that you believe, or a desire that draws your empathy to tears. Alice Hoffman has written the strength and tragedy of Masada through four women who have earned their wisdom through loss and who uphold their desires with hope.
Each of them cross the desert, fleeing from death only to encounter more hardships. The beauty of this book is borne of the love that lies beneath these hardships and of the magic and the strength that bind them when everything around them turns to ash.
Alice Hoffman has written a book that will move you. I hope you’ll let it.
