Publisher's Summary

Anna has done something terrible. She has given me her journal to fill. In Anna's journal the words walk across the page like bird prints in the mud. But it is hard for me. It is hard for me to find things to write about."It's your job now," Anna says as she hands Caleb her journals, asking him to continue writing the family story. Caleb fears there will be nothing left to write about, until a mysterious old man is discovered in the barn. Everyone is excited about the arrival of a new family member except for Jacob, who holds a bitter grudge. Only the special love of Caleb and the gift he offers can help to mend the pain of the past.Caleb's Story continues the saga begun by the Newbery Medal-winning Sarah, Plain and Tall and its sequel, Skylark, spinning a tale of love, forgiveness and the ties that bind a family together.
