"Caleb's Crossing"

NPR interview with Geraldine Brooks

I just finished reading Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks. It took me a few reads to actually get into the story, but once I crossed the line, there was no turning back.

I loved the research and the history surrounding the story. It is based on facts that Geraldine uncovered and the motivation for this story.

My book club, and my hometown, read "March" for which Ms. Brooks won a Pulitzer prize.

The above interview was excellent. I would love to hear any comments on the book as well. If you have read either book, please drop me a note.

Happy Spring!

  First flower of spring in my garden! Today at precisely at 5:24, the Earth balanced and spring arrived.  I think she arrived quite regally...
