* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
Kit (Katherine) Tyler’s grandfather has died. So she packs her bags, and heads off to join her aunt and uncle. But when she gets there, the customs are too strict, her dresses are considered “frivolous,” and her uncle is less than welcoming. Also, a certain boy named William is courting her, but does her heart lie with him, or with the son of a ship’s captain, Nat Eaton? After spending many weeks fuming, she finally runs off into the meadow, sobbing. There, a woman who has been accused of being a witch finds her. Soon, Kit realizes that Hannah is not what people think, and just a kind woman. But when a sickness strikes the town Kit lives in, Kit herself is accused of witchcraft- just for associating with Hannah! This book has you on the edge of your seat as you wonder if Kit will make it out of the trial, and who will claim her heart – Nat or William?
