The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman is the Adult Book Club selection for December. The following is a brief synopsis:
"In 70 CE, 900 Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on a mountain in the Judean, desert, Masada. Only two women and five children survived. Based on this tragic and iconic event, Hoffman weaves a spellbinding tale of four extraordinary bold, resourceful, and sensuous women, each of whom comes to Masada by a different path."
The book club meets the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. The December meeting is on the Dec. 26.
