Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
extremely brutal and violent against both people and animals. theses women with their myths, superstitions and beliefs are completely unbelievable and pathetic. having been to both Masada and Petra i did have to wonder if there was any truth to the words that made up this story and i choose to believe that there are none and hope that i am correct as the violence in my opinion was extreme. I know the tragedy that occurred at Masada is with out precedent and if there is any truth to this story of what happened there the actions of these women and their myths makes a horrific occurrence that much more pathetic. i ended up willing it to end and i have no idea why i listened to the entire book except that i was hopeful it would get better as i listened, it didn't.
the narration was good but i cannot recommend this book.
I really enjoyed this novel. The readers were all exceptional. The writing was beautiful and created a clear image, while invoking emotion. Its a heart breaking story, with a very feminine perspective. I definitely cried while listening, I really loved characters, but with how tragic the story is I would not suggest it to everyone.

This book is broken into parts. Part One seemed to go on forever, and since I didn't enjoy the narrator's monotonous performance, I almost didn't make it through. However, once I got into the second part, I enjoyed it much more, and was able to immerse myself in the story. The drama builds and builds, and if I were reading a hard copy, would definitely be termed a page-turner for the last half of the book. Fascinating for the historical fiction aspect - horrifying in it's brutality, compellingly written. If you can get through the beginning, it's worth it!
