OK, I am officially addicted to Audible :) ANYWAY, another keeper. Hoffman does an incredible job telling the story of the eviction of the Children of Israel from Jerusalem and their subsequent survival on Masada until they are overrun by the Romans. The narrator shifts effortlessly between four women who all come to Masada in very different ways. Don't feel intimidated by the historical context or setting in ancient Israel--Hoffman writes this novel in a way to make it accessible to everyone. Another book I simply did not want to see end.
Apparently this was recently made into a miniseries. I missed it, but according to other book club members--read the book.
