Caleb's Crossing: Read the Afterword First

I sat down with Caleb's Crossing, totally unsure of what to expect, having never read any of Geraldine Brooks' books before. It was slow going at first, but soon I felt as if something big was coming, so I continued to turn pages, anxiously awaiting the payoff. Unfortunately, I was left unsatisfied, and a little frustrated after reading the Afterword.  Read more >

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 >
