Caleb's Crossing: A Story of Triumph and Love

You are an independent woman with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, being denied the only thing that you have ever dreamed of -- an education.

Caleb's Crossing: Even the most unlucky among us can be heroes

Geraldine Brooks' novel, Caleb's Crossing, draws you in from the first page and doesn't let you go. As a soft hearted soul, I found myself full of passionate anger through every chapter of this tale. I kept those pages turning, begging, for the repression, shame, and heart ache to end. All the while lost in Brooks fluidity and effortlessness. I credit her historical accuracy, breathe taking imagery, strong character development, and skillful language, as my transport into this sad yet intriguing world.  Read more >

Geraldine Brooks' story is told through the eyes of Bethia Mayfield, a daughter of an English minister come to the new world to save those whom he can, including the "heathen" Indians.  Read more >
