The witch of Blackbird Pond

The Witch of Blackbird Pond
Author: Elizabeth George Speare
ISBN: 978-0-547-55029-9
Pages: 249

I found it hard to put this book down!  It is the story of a girl who loses her grandfather and goes to find her Auntie.  Upon finding her she discovers a different way of living.  One of which she struggles with.  From riches to rags.  From being a girl with servants to a girl who works all day.  Kit makes friends with Hannah Tupper, an older woman who lives on her own.  Hannah is a Quaker and the towns people think she is a witch.  Kit sees her differently but if anyone finds out she visits her she will be thought of the same way.  She finds she has to decide to stand by Hannah and risk everything or abandon her only friend. 

A story of courage and following your heart.

I would recommend this book for ages 12-13 up.  It will be enjoyed as a read aloud also.  I read this aloud and we all enjoyed it.

This book was available form: Book Depository, Fishpond, Amazon and Whitcoulls
