  • Well written. Improbable heroine Sep 2, 2014
    by Curmudgeon

    Well researched, fact filled, and written for inclusion of 17th century language, religious mores, personal interactions of life centered on a narrow interpretation of Christianity with intent to convert Native Americans. However, development of heroine's character appears too contrived, her role overly stressed, perhaps naively so, to bear witness to Caleb becoming the first Native American graduate of Harvard.

  • Great historical Fiction May 25, 2013
    by Jacquelyn S

    This book shows that times have not changed very much in how "we" treat different groups in our society. I picked this book up accidentally and then recommended it to 2 different book cubs to which I belong. The members of each group had lively discussions about the book- although not everyone enjoyed it. I found it a great read and it showed much about the early life in Massachusetts and the difference between what is preached and what is done!
