Book Review

(by- Linda )

If you like your Historical fiction character rich, pulled from the pages of history, well researched, unforgettable and thought-provoking, you do not want to miss this book by Alice Hoffman. It's an inspirational and riveting story about four remarkable women who lived during the siege and massacre of Masada in 70C.E.

Based on the historian Josephus's account, it vividly portrays the brutality of the Romans and the fragility of life. Hoffman's descriptions of the day-to-day life of this period are noteworthy and layered with believable events and character interactions. The primary perspective is from the female point of view and shows their fear, resilience, strength and determination as they navigate a life rife with danger. Highly recommend.
