This book is wonderful and moving. I am not a crier but this book touched me.

This is probably one of the longest audiobooks I've ever listened to, but it was so GOOD! Hoffman fleshes her characters out beautifully, and you feel as though these people were/are real. Hoffman uses language in a way that I haven't seen a good author use in a while, and she paints the scenes of the desert and the sights and smells and sounds of Masada as if she had been there. She instantly became one of my favorite authors after The Museum of Extraordinary Things.
