A thoroughly exciting and rewarding Newbery Medal winner and ALA Notable Children's Book, Elizabeth George Speare's The Witch of Blackbird Pond brings this frightening period of witch hysteria to life. Readers will wonder at the power of the mob mentality, and the need for communities in desperate times--even current times--to find a scapegoat. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter
I read this book in high school as required reading.
Reading this book allows you to really feel what it was like for Kit to want to do what was right, even when the people you love are going to be as hurt as you.
That noted, it is a great book for the audience for which it was written, and an entertaining, quick read for many adults as well.
Really enjoyed the period of time for this tale with beautiful warm climates and cold austere places. Good readPublished 1 day ago by Betty Frank
