The Witch of Blackbird Pond
by Elizabeth George Speare. I read this book once before for the Literary Club which my sister and I were a part of. I recently read it again, and thoroughly enjoyed it as before. Kit Tyler, looking at the shores of New England where she is going to live with her mother's sister and her family, realizes that her life will be very different from the life she enjoyed with her grandfather in the Caribbean. This book is a good book which I would recommend for Grade 5 and up. In reading or listening to it, one learns a lot about life in New England in the 1600's.
