Let's Discuss: The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman

20% off at Bookshop Santa Cruz for best sellers, or 10% off if you mention Ravenous Readers at the register or take the book off the book club wall. (It has a little tag in it for the cashier.)

Yael was born of a dead mother and father who knows how to become invisible. Revka learned silence when her grandsons lost their voices after witnessing their mother’s brutal murder. Aziza became a boy to protect herself, and hates being forced to turn back into a woman. And Shirah will do anything to protect those she loves from the horrors of the world. 

The power and violence of these women is evident in every word of The Dovekeepers. Hoffman’s prose is vivid and unforgettable, scorching like the desert heat, and will stay with you long after you finish the last page. A story of sacrifice, endurance, and above all, survival, The Dovekeepers is homage to anyone who’s ever held fast to their beliefs in the face of nearly insurmountable adversity.

NOTICE: Please bring cash to settle the bill at the restaurant.
