Taking place during the 1600’s, The Witch of Blackbird Pond, is a delightful story about a young girl named Kit Tyler. Kit is from a place where girls know how to swim. I love to swim, as well as draw and write, so naturally, I knew how she felt when she described swimming in the warm waters of Barbados, which is in the Caribbean. I enjoyed this intriguing story, and kept reading it. I finished it last night, which happens to be the day after, the day I bought it. The lady who wrote The Witch of Blackbird Pond, is a very talented author. I would like to read more stories like this one, in the future.
