Caleb's Crossing Is No Snooze-Fest

Once I got past the first couple chapters of Caleb's Crossing and found myself completely engrossed in this delicious tale of 17th century life on the East Coast - specifically in Martha's Vineyard and Cambridge, Massachusetts. The author, Geraldine Brooks, took a small factual piece of history -- a Native American boy from the Wampanoag tribe living on Martha's Vineyard becomes the first Native American to graduate from Harvard -- and weaves an entire story around it. The narrator is Bethia -- a spunky and intelligent girl who crosses paths with Caleb in their youth, setting off a series of events that keeps them connected for life.  Read more >

It's a defiant tone she sets, even as she describes her meek and humble lifestyle, learning details of her family's plans only by close listening when the men of her household speak.  Read more >

Caleb's Crossing: A Beautiful, Descriptive Tale of Our American History

One day a complete stranger, one who doesn't know anything about you, nor speaks your language, enters your world and communicates to you that everything you know and believe in your life is wrong. This was the reoccurring theme that struck me as I read Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks.  Read more >
