Sinossi

Sixteen-year-old Kit Tyler is marked by suspicion and disapproval from the moment she arrives on the unfamiliar shores of colonial Connecticut in 1687. Alone and desperate, she has been forced to leave her beloved home on the island of Barbados and join a 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.

Elizabeth George Speare won the 1959 Newbery Medal for this portrayal of a heroine whom readers will admire for her unwavering sense of truth as well as her infinite capacity to love.

5.0 su 5 stelle a charming classic 7 aprile 2017
Di Miss Print - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Kit Tyler leaves her home in Barbados to travel alone across the ocean to colonial Connecticut in 1687. She has no reason to stay in Barbados with her grandfather dead and buried. With nowhere else to go she undertakes the long boat trip on her own assured that she will be welcome with open arms by her aunt's family.

Her arrival doesn't go as expected. Kit's uninhibited childhood in Barbados has left the sixteen-year-old wildly unprepared for life among her Puritan relatives. Her cousins covet her beautiful clothes even while her uncle looks at the bright colors and luxurious fabrics of her dresses with scorn. Kit barely recognizes her aunt, struggling to see any hint of her own mother in her aunt's weather worn face.

When she discovers a beautiful meadow near a pond, Kit finds some much needed solitude and a break in the monotonous drudgery of life with her relatives. Kit also finds an unexpected friend in Hannah Tupper, an old woman who is shunned reviled by the community for her Quaker beliefs and rumors that claim Hannah is a witch.

As she learns more about Hannah and her life by the pond Kit will have to decide what, if anything, she is willing to give up for a chance to belong in The Witch of Blackbird Pond (1958) by Elizabeth George Speare.

Have you ever had a visceral reaction to a book. The Witch of Blackbird Pond is that kind of title for me.

This Newbery award winner came to my attention after my aunt gifted me a copy from her days working at Houghton Mifflin when I was in grade school. Like a lot of books back then I motored through it, eventually donated my copy to my school library, and didn't think about it again for years. But because I became a librarian and worked briefly at a bookseller, I encountered this classic title again as an adult.

Every time I saw it on a shelf I would feel that jolt of recognition. Yes, this book was one that meant so much to me as a child. It also, if you pay attention to book editions, has had some hideous covers over the years. My most recent rediscovery of The Witch of Blackbird Pond happened when The Book Smugglers featured the book in their Decoding the Newbery series. I enjoyed reading Catherine King's thoughts (and share many of them) but what really jolted me was the cover. Because finally it was the cover I had first read so many years ago!

Finding and purchasing that edition prompted me to re-read The Witch of Blackbird Pond. I discovered a lot of the things I remembered loving when I read the story the first time: Kit's determination and perseverance not to mention her friendship with Hannah Tupper. I also love the push and pull Kit has both with her cousins and her suitors. This story is more purely historical than I remembered and Speare's writing is starkly evocative of Puritan New England.

For readers of a certain age, The Witch of Blackbird Pond needs no introduction or recommendation. Younger readers will also find a smart, character driven story. Perfect for fans of historical fictions and readers hoping to discover (or rediscover) a charming classic.

Possible Pairings: All the Truth That's in Me by Julie Berry, Chime by Franny Billingsley, A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray, Conversion by Katherine Howe, Salt and Storm by Kendall Kulper, Witch Child by Celia Rees, The Caged Graves by Dianne K. Salerni

5.0 su 5 stelle good historical literature 9 novembre 2015
Di S. Duck - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Usually books don't become classics without a reason. The Witch of Blackbird Pond is, simply, good historical literature. While it IS fiction, and there are elements of the story that might arguably not be completely realistic, this book is a good starting-point for a discussion about different elements of human nature and the lifestyle of the early Colonial period. If you are planning on teaching this book, however, be sure that the student realizes the historical background of the conflict between the different groups, and why some were antagonistic to the others. Otherwise, the student might get a wrong or stereotyped impression of the different groups.

5.0 su 5 stelle This is a great book for children and adults 24 febbraio 2017

The Witch of Blackbird Pond was one of my required reading books when I was in sixth grade. I loved it. Now that I have a daughter who will soon be the same age I was when I first read it, I figured I'd buy this book for her. Except, I ended up reading it myself!! I love it even more now!! It's one of those stories that stays with you long after you finish it.

4.0 su 5 stelle Girl empowering. 19 aprile 2015
Di Indygal - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I read this book when I was looking for a gift for a friends granddaughter. It is a well written book and is recognized as a empowering book. The lead character is a strong young woman who tests the norms of the time and her locale. Additionally, it shows even in puritanical times some women fought the illiterate superstitions and persecution of those that were of different beliefs and traditions. Although she tested the culture, she respected their traditions. She used her mind and education to affect change and bring in to the open efforts with in her family and friends to be more open and accepting. I added this book to our local park's book lending box.

5.0 su 5 stelle Wonderful book, every child should read! 30 settembre 2013
Di Holly - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is the book that made me fall in love with reading! I was a child that had a hearing problem growing up. This made school work very hard for me. I was not popular, and had to work very hard to just make a passing grade. I was in the 6th grade when my teacher had us read this for school. This was when things changed for me. I identified with Kit. My teacher would scold me for reading ahead because I would be ahead of the rest of the class; but it didn't stop me. This book was the beginning of my education. Through it, I realized that I could do anything. I could face hardships, love is a very powerful thing.

It's a child's book. Easy to read, but the characters are so well written. Every one of my niece's received a copy to read the summer before they started 6th grade. I wanted to give them the power to know that they are strong, loved, and can do anything with their lives. I encourage you to read it with your kids. I read again every once in a while when I need a little inspiration, it's easy, and doesn't take long, but it encourages me.
