amazing book! I am forever picking it up to read the good parts. I feel that everyone should read it at least once. One of my top 5, along with The Bronze Bow!

Battling back against puritanical prejudice to find who you are is practically an American institution, and, as in this classic, makes for some compelling reading.

Wonderful book!!! I was a little bored at the beginning, but after pushing through, I got to the good part and loved it! I love the feeling and anticipation you get when reading the parts with the three girls and who they like. Watching their love unfold is the best part!

I'm not much of a historical fiction reader, but I decided to give this one a try. I'm sure glad I did. I just wanted to climb right into the book and fight for Kit. A truly riveting and engaging read.

This tale of a teenage girl who moves from Barabados to Connecticut in the 1680's has it all- romance! Danger! Suspense! I fell in love with the feisty heroine, Kit, the first time I read this book 20 years ago.

When I began reading this book, I was very skeptical of it's "classic" status. However, after having read it, I don't know how I will ever be able to put the novel down. Kit's story is one that shows courage, spunk, and of course, the way the world once was. Every reader should add this to their shelves.

This is one of my favorite books! Along with Tuck Everlasting, Ella Enchanted, and Katherine: Heart of Freedom. I really love historical fiction and the colonial era. This has romance, adventure, it teaches some things about the late 1600's in America, it's entertaining, I couldn't put it down! I highly suggest it!
