Review – “The Witch of Blackbird Pond” by Elizabeth George Speare


The Witch of Blackbird PondThe Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kit travels to New England from Barbados to find her Puritan family and townsfolk difficult to warm up to. She finds happiness with Nat a sea-farer.

While this book, no doubt, provides an accurate description of puritan New England, and could be used to discuss the historical period, and the themes of loneliness and being different, it was boring. The title character does not have as large a part as I would have liked. I stopped reading this book any chance I got and only finished it for EDU 513.
