Maybe because I had such high expectations for this book, having read all of Geraldine Brooks' previous books, I was faintly disappointed in this book at first. I found it difficult to "get into" and I wasn't sure that I was all that interested in the lives of this particular set of characters. About half way through, I found myself enjoying it much more, By the time I finished it, this book and all of the characters in it - especially Bethia and Caleb, had won me over.
