BETHIA'S CROSSING would be a title more indicative of the book's contents. Caleb is mostly a peripheral character.
Feisty Puritan girl finds devious ways of gaining the knowledge she craves but is denied simply because she is a female. First I ever heard of someone getting a college education via eavesdropping.

Liz Agree that the novel is about Bethia. Well put!

John C. Well put.

Benn Jamieson Spot on!

Susanna Lambert But Caleb is the one whose crossings are covered - physically, culturally, and ultimately.
