Book Beginnings: The Dovekeepers


Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman

"We had been wandering for so long I forgot what it was like to live within walls or sleep through the night."

This is not the Jews wandering in the desert, but that has happened more than once. It's really neat that this book is based on a true event.
