This review is from: Caleb's Crossing (Paperback)
This was my book group choice of book for the first month. I loved the way the author took some basic historical fact, in this case, the first Indian admitted to Harvard and then wove a story round it to create a work of fiction. I found the descriptions of the settlers lives in Martha's Vineyard area of the US fascinating. I also loved the gentle style of writing that complimented the story so well. That's not to say Geraldine Brooks shy's away from difficult topics. There were a few gruesome parts in this story. Went on to read another of this authors books "Year of Wonders" because I enjoyed this so much.
