Format: Paperback
This story is centered on a young girl, Miriam Willard, and her family. Algonquin Indians capture them from their cozy home in New Hampshire in 1754. The Indians take the family through endless forest trails. Susanna, Miriam's sister, is pregnant and has her baby on the way and she names him Captive. Miriam must deliver the baby to in order for it to survive. After resting very rarely, the Indians stop at an Indian camp. They sell the family as servants and send the whole family, except Susanna, to Montreal. The family is separated. The rich Du Quense family buys Miriam and she works there as a servant. Felicity, the daughter, does not know English, therefore the mother sends Miriam to teach her every morning. Before long the two girls become friends. When Filicity's fiancee falls in love with Miriam, her mother becomes jealous and kicks Miriam out of the house. Hortense, a servant whom Miriam had bonded with, offered a place in her home. In order to make money, Miriam became a dressmaker for the governor's wife. The governor had recently put the rest of her family in jail for being traders. Miriam tells the governor's wife the story of how she got to where she was and how hard she worked. The wife takes pity on her and gets the governor to release her family from jail. Miriam is proven to be a brave and courageous young woman. She is smart and very strong willed. You will find many examples of this as you read the book.
I recommend this book to people who like adventure and suspense. Speare does a great job with words and will definitely give you a wide variety of writing styles. I found this book very exciting and suspenseful. It is an excellent book to read on long trips because it will keep you reading and you will not notice the time.

I read this wonderful book sixteen years ago, after checking it out at the local library. A few years ago, I went through a period of re-reading young adult books in my on-going attempt to collect books for my personal library. I found this book in the library -- after remembering only that "calico" was in the title. Fourteen years later -- and more maturity! -- I must say this book was wonderfully written and worth the re-read. It will be a fine addition to my library.

I read this book six times and am still interested. It is fantastic. It tells about how a girl journeys through indian captivity , slavery, and must choose between 2 lovers. If you like romance and the french and indian time period, you are going to love this book. Also, this book had an epiloque at the end so you knew exactly what happened and the author didn't leave you hanging. Take this good advice and READ IT!

Format: Paperback
I loved The Witch of Blackbird Pond but if possible this one was even better. I had originally bought it for my teenage daughter but at her insistence I started it and read it straight through.
I plan to buy it in hard cover so that she can someday hand it down to her daughter.
I suggest reading it as a teenager for the romance and adventure and then reading it again as an adult when you fully appreciate the plight of the characters (especially the women) in the story.
