Reviews
Praise for Caleb's Crossing

"Caleb's Crossing could not be more enlightening and involving. Beautifully written from beginning to end, it reconfirms Geraldine Brooks's reputation as one of our most supple and involving novelists." --Jane Smiley, The New York Times Book Review

"Brooks filters the early colonial era through the eyes of a minister's daughter growing up on the island known today as Martha's Vineyard...[Bethia's] voice - rendered by Brooks with exacting attention to the language and rhythm of the seventeenth century - is captivatingly true to her time." --The New Yorker

"A dazzling act of the imagination. . .Brooks takes the few known facts about the real Caleb, and builds them into a beautifully realized and thoroughly readable tale...this is intimate historical fiction, observing even the most acute sufferings and smallest heroic gestures in the context of major events." --Matthew Gilbert, The Boston Globe

"In Bethia, Geraldine Brooks has created a multidimensional, inspiring yet unpredictable character...Bethia's forbearance, her quiet insistence, the way she creates her life using the best of whatever is handed to her, puts the struggles of American women today in perspective." --Susan Salter Reynolds, The Los Angeles Times

"Original and compelling. . .[Brooks' characters] struggle every waking moment with spiritual questions that are as real and unending as the punishing New England winters."--Paul Chaat Smith, The Washington Post
