The heroine is a courageous, free-minded young girl, who must face the intolerance and bigotry of her peers. When her unconventional character and education bring about general suspicion, Kit Tyler has only her own courage, as well as some unlikely friends, to offer comfort and support as she becomes victim to the horrible persecution of witch hunting. It is a tale full of courage, hardship, and battle against intolerance and fear. ** Elizabeth George Speare (1908-1994) was an American writer of children's books, best known for historical novels, of which this is the first. About her work, a biographer described her writing as more than just an entertaining escape, because "in exploring universal problems and offering timeless values, she offers them hope for the present and the future as well."
