    Over five years in the writing, Alice Hoffman’s most ambitious and mesmerizing work ever, a triumph of imagination and research set in ancient Israel. The author of such iconic bestsellers as Illumination Night, Practical Magic, Fortune’s Daughter, and Oprah’s Book Club selection Here on Earth, Alice Hoffman is one of the most popular and memorable writers of her generation. Now, in The Dovekeepers, Hoffman delivers her most masterful work yet - one that draws on her passion for mythology, magic, and archaeology and her inimitable understanding of women.

    Story

    This has to be my favorite audio book of all time and I have hundreds in my library. Each sentence weaves the storylines together in such a magnificent way with each charachter touching the lives of others with the decisions they make or situations created for them. It's an Alice Hoffman novel and it is magical, but down to earth and pragmatic with the emotional lives of the Dovekeepers. I keep thinking of the ways each women ties into each others lives playing off of each others fears, insecurities, joys and ultimately strengths. This book equals or exceeds a few I didn't think could go down a notch - The Time Travelor's Wife, Water for Elephants and Prodigal Summer left me with similar wonder with the storytelling and a sadness to say goodbye to the story.

    As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay - with officer Nestor Camacho on board - Tom Wolfe is off and running. Here is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous best-selling novels, Back to Blood is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.

    Story

    Lou Diamond Phillips was extraordinary as narrator and the story was great. I listened to another Tom Wolfe novel right after because this was so good! It was intelligent yet easy, dealt with difficult issues with levity - I highly recommend.
