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.

    Reoccuring Theme

    The Crossing theme presents itself in many ways - religion, spirituality, education, culture, relationships, even life and death. A challenge to put down and pick up later.

    Caleb's Crossing

    This book was a great read. I liked it so well I bought the hard copy for my daughter, but because of the puritanical language she found it difficult to read. This book brought to life what it must have been like to live during that time in history.
