Synopsis

A bestselling tale of passion and belief, magic and adventure from the author of The Secret Chord and of March, winner of the Pulitzer Prize.

Bethia Mayfield is a restless and curious young woman growing up in Martha's vineyard in the 1660s amid a small band of pioneering English Puritans. At age twelve, she meets Caleb, the young son of a chieftain, and the two forge a secret bond that draws each into the alien world of the other. Bethia's father is a Calvinist minister who seeks to convert the native Wampanoag, and Caleb becomes a prize in the contest between old ways and new, eventually becoming the first Native American graduate of Harvard College. Inspired by a true story and narrated by the irresistible Bethia, Caleb’s Crossing brilliantly captures the triumphs and turmoil of two brave, openhearted spirits who risk everything in a search for knowledge at a time of superstition and ignorance.

I enjoy all of Geraldine Brooks books but enjoyed Caleb's Crossing so much because of my ties to Martha's Vineyard. While listening to the book I read of a second student from the Wompanoag Tribe of Gay Head was receiving her degree from Harvard. One in 1665 and now one in 2011. The reader was so excellent and when the island was described I could see and feel it the way it was the first time I saw it from the ferry when there were fewer houses. I could feel Caleb's need to go back to the island at some point. An excellent book!!
