“A long-time fan of Geraldine Brooks, I’m reading her latest, Caleb’s Crossing. She takes the few facts known about the first American Indian to graduate from Harvard College back in 1665 and creates a vivid, highly involved story with a reverence for learning at its core. Beautifully and convincingly written as the confessional diary of Bethia Mayfield, the account follows her journey from girlhood to womanhood and Caleb’s from ‘savage’ to scholar.”

Cathy Marie Buchanan, author of The Painted Girls
