Editorial Reviews

Review

"I am still reeling from "The Dovekeepers"--from the history Alice Hoffman illuminates, from the language she uses to bring these women to life. This novel is a testament to the human spirit and to love rising from the ashes of war. But most of all, this novel is one that will never be forgotten by a reader." --Jodi Picoult, author of "Sing You Home"

"Beautiful, harrowing, a major contribution to twenty-first century literature."--Toni Morrison, Nobel Laureate in Literature

"In her remarkable new novel, Alice Hoffman holds a mirror to our ancient past as she explores the contemporary themes of sexual desire, women's solidarity in the face of strife, and the magic that's quietly present in our day-to-day living. Put "The Dovekeepers" at the pinnacle of Hoffman's extraordinary body of work. I was blown away." --Wally Lamb, author of "The Hour I First Believed"
