Caleb's Crossing is a Heartwarming Story of Friendship

BlogHer Review

When I first picked up the book, Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks, I was not sure if I'd like it. As each page I turned, the more engrossed in the book I had became. The story is in the viewpoint of Bethia, who befriends a Indian boy that lives on the same island as her. It describes their lives, how they were intertwined from the start. Reading it, you felt as if you were Bethia, walking through the sand of the beach with her and Caleb.

The book is a page turner, about a young boy and girl, going through the test of time in the early colonial time. You read each page as the friendship grows, as they grow older. Off he goes to college, Harvard, and she is there with him. Being his friend and being supportive of him.

It is a heartwarming story of friendship, love and loss. If you have a love of history, of seeing how things may have happened in years that have gone by, you would love this book.
