Orphaned Kit Tyler knows, as she gazes for the first time at the cold, bleak shores of Connecticut Colony, that her new home will never be like the shimmering Caribbean islands she left behind. In her relatives' stern Puritan community, she feels like a tropical bird that has flown to the wrong part of the world, a bird that is now caged and lonely. The only place where Kit feels completely free is in the meadows, where she enjoys the company of the old Quaker woman known as the witch of Blackbird Pond, and on occasion, her young sailor friend Nat. But when Kit's friendship with the witch is discovered, Kit is faced with suspicion, fear and anger. She herself is accused of witchcraft! Download and start listening now!

    " 5th Newbery Medal winner book I've read as a challenge with friends. I have to admit, it was hard for me to get into this book, but I am glad I stuck with it. It was a great ending that I saw coming but didn't see how it would get there! "

    " I think this was an extremely well written book... It had the thoughts and devotions of a girl who has a mind of her own, and tries to do the right thing. It made me swim in the words, and dare to turn the page... "
