Caleb's Crossing: Absorbing and Believable

She slips into the wilderness in secret and I find myself, in the age of social media and modern freedoms, inexplicably identifying with her as she questions her religious colonial upbringing. It is Caleb's Crossing only in as much as the title that adorns the front of the paperback in my hands.  Read more >

Fiction and History Combine in Caleb's Crossing

Caleb's Crossing, by Geraldine Brooks, takes us through the tale of the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College in 1665. While Caleb is a real-life, historical figure, this piece of fiction attempts to tell his background story -- and the story of many Native American peoples within the British colonies -- through the eyes of Bethia, a smart, savvy English girl, who thanks to the constraints placed upon women at the time is forced to live out her educational aspirations through the men in her life -- her father, then her brother, and then finally, Caleb.  Read more >

The Problem with Historical Language in Caleb's Crossing

It is written in a diary style, from the perspective of Bethia, the daughter of a pioneering puritan minister.  Read more >

Caleb's Crossing: A Pastor's Wife's Point of View

I have to say, Caleb's Crossing was a fascinating book. I don’t often turn to the pages of a historical novel, but I’m really glad I read this one. The author, Geraldine Brooks, did a wonderful job of really helping us to get to know Bethia’s character -- all of the important details that wove her into the person she became at the end of the book. I came to really admire Bethia, and found myself cheering for her when things went well, and mourning with her during the many difficult times in her life.  Read more >
