family she has never met. Torn between her quest for belonging and her desire to be true to herself, Kit struggles to survive in a hostile place. Just when it seems she must give up, she finds a kindred spirit. But Kit"s friendship with Hannah Tupper, believed by the colonists to be a witch, proves more taboo than she could have imagined and ultimately forces Kit to choose between her heart and her duty.

    I know this won the Newbery award but I thought it was just OK. It may have been that I listened to it and wasn't enamored by the narrator.

    Known as a young adult book world widely which was categorized as a children's book in Taiwan when I was a little girl. I have to point out that it's far too difficult for a child to understand the history background of the story, especially for an Asian girl like me at that time. But I did enjoy reading it as a little girl and it turned out one of my favorite books.
