One of Alice Hoffman’s most compelling novels, set in ancient Israel in 70 C.E. recounting the hard tale of Masada.

900 Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. According to the ancient historian, Josephus, two women and five children survived.

This novel is a tale of four extraordinarily bold, resourceful, and sensuous women, each of whom has come to Masada by a different path. $15 plus s&h.
