The Witch of Blackbird Pond

by Elizabeth George Speare is a good book. If you don't like witches, this book is not about a bad witch, (or a good witch for that matter). In fact, it isn't about a real witch at all. The "witch" was called a witch by the Puritans living in Wethersfield, Connecticut because the woman, (whose name is Hanna Tupper,) was a Quaker. I probably wouldn't have read this book if I was not in a Literary Club.

Good Authors

Louisa May Alcott
