Description: In 70 CE, 900 Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on a mountain in the Judean desert, Masada. Four bold, resourceful, and sensuous women come to Masada. The Dovekeepers presents the stories of a hated daughter, a grieving baker’s wife, a girl disguised as a warrior, and a medicine woman who keep doves and secrets while Roman soldiers draw near. The four lives intersect in the desperate days of the siege, as the Romans draw near. All are dovekeepers, and all are also keeping secrets — about who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and whom they love.
