BookLender review by Sherilyn on 2011-06-20 19:55:48

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!!
