The Witch of Blackbird PondThe Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare My rating: 4 of 5 stars Synopsis: A high-spirited teenage girl rebels against the narrow-minded ways of Puritan Connecticut and befriends a lonely old woman who is subsequently accused of being a witch. Genres: Historical Fiction, Classic Review: This book is very catching. It starts off a little slow but once you are into it you are pretty much hooked. The topic is an interesting one, and very historical while the novel itself is fiction. Speare weaves and intricate story. It's enjoyable and fun to read. Plus you learn some things about the topic if covers, The Salem Witch Trials. Well written and enjoyable.
