Teaser Tuesdays: The Dovekeepers

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman p. 48

"I had stopped counting off days. I did not wish to be elsewhere even though there was still no sign of my brother and the fortresses of the rebel Jews."

So the Romans have attacked Jerusalem and the Jews, and a group is rebelling and fighting back. They are retreating to a fortress built onto a rugged and difficult mountain with only a narrow mountain pass for access.
