This classic is just as wonderful as it was the first time I read it as a teenager. The colorful characters, the honesty in which life in 17th Century New England is written, brought back all the memories which made this a favorite book of mine. I think I was also able to read more into it as an adult, as well. Not just the story, but between the lines, the hardships of life back then, the sharp differences in religion and loyalty to home and family. How friendships come about and thrive when you stand up for what you believe in, no matter the cost. This is a keeper for me. I hope someday my daughter will love this book as much as I do.

Ms. Speare does a wonderful job with this book. There is a very strong plot with convincing characters. The story of a girl whose rebellion against bigotry and her Puritan surroundings explode in a witch hunt and trail.

Good read showing what prejudices existed in the late 1600's puritian communities. While I think the book was written to the lighter side of "fitting-in" the treatment of Hannah was most likely a very real thing during that time period as well as mean spirited. The book ends with all being happy (except the real mean woman), which I always like, but may not have been real for the times.
