Elizabeth George Speare does a wonderful job of not only placing the reader in a working Puritan village in the 17th century but populating her story with compelling characters and leaving the readers with a good message. If it adhered a bit closer to history, it's a story that had the potential for great violence and tragedy, but perhaps due to its young audience, everything turns out happy in the end. I liked how Speare introduces close to a dozen characters, assigning them roles in the village and personalities that distinguish them from one another.

I read this at 12 years old and loved it. I decided to read it again since I couldn't remember any details. I loved it all over again. It is a fantastic way to learn about America before the revolution. The characters come alive and so does the landscape. Great for young teens and adults. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Kit Tyler leaves her home in Barbados to travel alone across the ocean to colonial Connecticut in 1687. She has no reason to stay in Barbados with her grandfather dead and buried. With nowhere else to go she undertakes the long boat trip on her own assured that she will be welcome with open arms by her aunt's family.

Her arrival doesn't go as expected. Kit's uninhibited childhood in Barbados has left the sixteen-year-old wildly unprepared for life among her Puritan relatives. Her cousins covet her beautiful clothes even while her uncle looks at the bright colors and luxurious fabrics of her dresses with scorn. Kit barely recognizes her aunt, struggling to see any hint of her own mother in her aunt's weather worn face.

When she discovers a beautiful meadow near a pond, Kit finds some much needed solitude and a break in the monotonous drudgery of life with her relatives. Kit also finds an unexpected friend in Hannah Tupper, an old woman who is shunned reviled by the community for her Quaker beliefs and rumors that claim Hannah is a witch.

As she learns more about Hannah and her life by the pond Kit will have to decide what, if anything, she is willing to give up for a chance to belong in The Witch of Blackbird Pond (1958) by Elizabeth George Speare.

Have you ever had a visceral reaction to a book. The Witch of Blackbird Pond is that kind of title for me.

This Newbery award winner came to my attention after my aunt gifted me a copy from her days working at Houghton Mifflin when I was in grade school. Like a lot of books back then I motored through it, eventually donated my copy to my school library, and didn't think about it again for years. But because I became a librarian and worked briefly at a bookseller, I encountered this classic title again as an adult.

Every time I saw it on a shelf I would feel that jolt of recognition. Yes, this book was one that meant so much to me as a child. It also, if you pay attention to book editions, has had some hideous covers over the years. My most recent rediscovery of The Witch of Blackbird Pond happened when The Book Smugglers featured the book in their Decoding the Newbery series. I enjoyed reading Catherine King's thoughts (and share many of them) but what really jolted me was the cover. Because finally it was the cover I had first read so many years ago!

Finding and purchasing that edition prompted me to re-read The Witch of Blackbird Pond. I discovered a lot of the things I remembered loving when I read the story the first time: Kit's determination and perseverance not to mention her friendship with Hannah Tupper. I also love the push and pull Kit has both with her cousins and her suitors. This story is more purely historical than I remembered and Speare's writing is starkly evocative of Puritan New England.

For readers of a certain age, The Witch of Blackbird Pond needs no introduction or recommendation. Younger readers will also find a smart, character driven story. Perfect for fans of historical fictions and readers hoping to discover (or rediscover) a charming classic.

I'm not much of a history buff. I ended up reading this Newbery award winning book because it was assigned to my 11-year-old son. He was "skip reading" because the story wasn't his cup of tea, and he was having a really hard time understanding some of the themes in it. We enjoyed reading and discussing it together. For students, it's a great blend of history and literature. We spent quite a bit of time talking about Royalists, Colonists, Puritans and Quakers - and their roles in the story. Reading this book really expanded his knowledge of colonial America.

There's great character development. We see Kit grow from an impulsive, sheltered, proud young girl to a courageous young woman who is unafraid to buck society's expectations when it means doing what's right. We see what happens when extreme intolerance overshadows compassion.

Uncle Matthew's character is interesting. I grew to like him because, despite his rigid political beliefs, he loved and defended his family - including Kit. We alternated between the hardcover, digital text and audiobook. This was a great read!

The Witch of Blackbird Pond was one of my required reading books when I was in sixth grade. I loved it. Now that I have a daughter who will soon be the same age I was when I first read it, I figured I'd buy this book for her. Except, I ended up reading it myself!! I love it even more now!! It's one of those stories that stays with you long after you finish it.

Review I loved this story as a child and I love it again now. A different take this time. It was still an adventure of a young girl (Kit) coming to live with her Puritan family all the way from a free roaming life in Barbados after her grandfather's death. Shades of Little Women show up because she also has 2 cousins--one very pretty and outgoing and the other sweet, quiet and crippled. Kit meets up with three young men who all seem to fall for her but she holds out until she actually knows who she loves (Nat). He owns a ship that travels from the Caribbean to Massachusetts yearly, so she is able to live her life in both places half the year. She finds that not all Puritans are cruel but some are and that she doesn't like long church services at least not twice a week. Nor does she like manual labor. :-) The witch in the story is , of course. not a witch. She is an Amish woman who has been shunned by all and branded a witch (literally) on her forehead. She is kind and caring and seems to take in stray and hurting people one by one. She is run out of town when a sickness runs through the village and affects many of the children...some die. So it literally becomes a "witch hunt". With the help of a friend (Nat) she gets away and finds a good and welcoming home with Kit's soon to be husband's family.

Engaging historical fiction novel. Clever writing and vivid story line makes this a must-read! The title is a bit of a misnomer, as this is NOT about a witch, but about the puritans who settled into the New World. This story line helps the reader dive into that time period and discover the thought processes that made innocent people become accused of witchcraft (swimming, anyone?).

I first read this book when I was 10, I found it at my local library. It is a really nice story, with a sweet romance, and a little history mixed in. Perfect for a young girl who enjoys reading. But I still continue to re-read it every now and then...in fact I just read it again last week, and I'm almost 60 years old. I was happy to find it in the Kindle library for purchase, as my hard copy isn't always in my purse. I highly recommend this book.
