Throwback Thursday is a weekly event hosted by Take Me Away
Throwbacks can be:
a book you've read and loved, or a book you've always wanted to read
a book that brings back memories for you
from as far back as your childhood, or just from last year
a classic or a hidden gem
My choice is my all time Favorite Book from my childhood:
The Witch of Blackbird Pond
I first read this book for a summer reading list when I was about 10 years old. Even at such a young age, I had visions of being swept away by a fine, young sailor named Nat. But, seriously this book was unforgettable! It's about a young, free-spirited girl named Kit who was raised by her grandfather in Barbados. When he dies, she is sent to live with her religious aunt in America. When she arrives,she seems to always do the wrong thing, causing suspicion and fear. She finds a friend in the local outcast Hannah and before long people are suspecting that her impulsive ways are those of a "witch". This book introduced me to reading and I think inspired me to be a life-long reader!
