Fiction author — Alice Hoffman — has blessed the reading world with novel after novel. Her most recent creation —The Dovekeepers — is a literary force, a tempest, a GIFT.
“Once in a lifetime a book may come to a writer as an unexpected gift. The Dovekeepers is such a book for me. It was a gift from great-great grandmothers, the women of ancient Israel who first spoke to me when I visited the mountain fortress of Masada. In telling their story of loss and love, I’ve told my own story as well. After writing for thirty-five years, after more than thirty works of fiction, I was given the story I was meant to tell.”
As a writer, I got chills when I read this, knowing, sensing the truth of her words — of one’s life potential — to stay open, to receive, to tell the tale you were meant to transcribe — to share.
Happy Birthday Alice Hoffman and thank you for The Dovekeepers — the story you were meant to give the world.
