There is a contradiction underpinning the whole project of English imperialism, and Nesbit flags it perfectly.

The New York Times

Part mystery, part love story, beautifully told and meticulously researched…

—Anton DiSclafani, author of THE YONAHLOSSEE RIDING CAMP FOR GIRLS

Beheld disrupts expectation to render the pulsing messy lives of those too often calcified in myth.

USA Today

Nesbit . . . cleverly recasts pilgrim history in this deeply enjoyable novel . . .[her] lush prose adds texture to stories of the colony’s women, and her deep immersion in primary sources adds complexity to the historical record.

Publishers Weekly, starred review

In Nesbit’s hands, history once again comes alive.

Booklist

A richly complex and sorrowful work…In this powerful work, Nesbit renders the past without muting its gravity.
