Waiting on Wednesday: The Dove Keepers

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking The Spine. If you read my blog at all you’ll know I can’t wait for this one…

The Dove Keepers by Alice Hoffman (Simon & Schuster, October 2011)

Alice Hoffman’s richest, most ambitious novel ever, a tour de force of imagination and research, set in ancient Israel.

  1. This one sounds promising. I know a lot of my friends love Alice Hoffman, but I, sadly, haven’t read any of her books. I’ll have to keep my eye out for this one. Great pick!

  2. What???? I didn’t know she had a new one coming out….thanks for the heads-up!

    That cover is very interesting. Good to know that Alice Hoffman has a new book coming out.

  4. Ooo this looks really interesting! I love the cover and the historical setting! Im putting this on my to read list now!

  5. Yes, it does look good. I’m hoping to get an arc on this one, otherwise I’ll have to wait until October when it’s released.

  6. Oh, I love Alice Hoffman’s work, and hadn’t heard about this one yet…thanks for sharing!

    Here’s MY WOW POST

  7. I have been meaning to read Hoffman. The cover is very appealing to me.

  8. How did I not know about this book? Seriously? Gotta have it!

  9. That looks so good. I’ve never read Hoffman- I have to, I know!

  10. I wasn’t aware of this one; great pick!

    I’ve been lucky enough to nab an advanced reader’s copy. Only about a quarter of the way in right now, but so far, it’s wonderful! The language is beautiful and I’m positive it’s going to have me sobbing in the next 100 pages or so.

  12. Love Alice Hoffman, but afraid to purchase this one as the description implies a level of violence that might be pretty graphic. Feedback from anyone who may have read this book? Thanks!

    The book is amazing – very well researched. The violence is implied (it is the tale of Masada, after all) but never really graphic. I put it down several times anticipating a scene that would be too much, but it never was. She takes you up to the edge, but never over. Probably one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time.
