      When her grandfather died and left debt everywhere, Kit Tyler paid all the debts by selling everything she owned in Barbados. When a pudgy faced man insists on marrying her, she leaves for her Aunt Rachel's home. When she arrives in the Connecticut Colony, she finds that she doesn't quite conform to her Puritan family's lifestyle and rules. She tries her best to fit in but is still unhappy with herself. Then she meets a Quaker named Hannah Tupper who is supposedly a witch. She feels at peace with Hannah and will do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means being accused of witchcraft. This book was absolutely legendary and explained that we have choices and that it is okay to be different. If I had to rate this book, I would give it a 150/100. That is how good it is. I seriously recommend this book to everyone.

          When Kit's grandfather dies she is forced to leave her home on the island of Barbados. and now she must join her strictly puritan relatives in America. But Kit can't seem to fit in the quiet puritan life. But then she meets Hannah, a quiet old Quaker who is believed to be witch, Kit 's life changes. and she knows she'll do anything to keep Hannah from harm, even if she is accused of witchcraft herself. This story was really touching. And it provided a glimpse of what life was like during the witch trials, when innocent people where put to death for being accused of witchcraft.

              This is one of the best books I have ever read. I had to read this book for school and I thought it would be boring and then after the first chapter I was surprised. It is about a girl named Kit who is 16.She is also courageous, outgoing, stubborn, and educated. In the book she is a social outcast. She goes on a ship to Connecticut.
