When she arrives in Connecticut, she meets her cousins Judith and Mercy and her Aunt Rachel and Uncle Matthew. Her life changes because now she has to do a lot of work like knitting and making dinner and it is really hard for her. She meets and befriends an old lady named Hannah Tupper who the townspeople suspect of being a witch. Since Kit is friends with Hannah, they also suspect Kit of being a witch. They burn down Hannahís house, but she escapes. Kit has to go to court because she is suspected of witchcraft, but does she make it? Youíll just have to read the book to find out!
I think this is a great book. It has love, drama, and a little bit of history. This book is unusual because it takes place in the 1600s in New England and it gives you an idea of what it was like to live in that time period. My favorite character was Hannah Tupper because you did not know if she was a witch or not. My favorite part was when Hannah escapes onto the boat. Itís a great book and you should read it.
I recommend this book to people ages 9 and up. It might be too hard for someone younger, because the language is complicated. This book is cool because it gives you an idea of what it was like to live in the 1600s and what problems they had to deal with. I think this book would be great for someone who likes drama because the possibility of witchcraft and the court case were exciting.
