We had been wandering for so long I forgot what it was like to live within walls or sleep through the night. In that time I lost all I might have possessed if Jerusalem had not fallen: a husband, a family, a future of my own. My girlhood disappeared in the desert.Someone (in a Facebook group I'm in) posted this question: "What book has impacted you these past few years?" One woman wrote simply, "The Dovekeepers." So I moved it to the top of my TBR stack.
