In the beginnings of the novel Kit is young and has lived a free spirited life at a location where she had the freedom from Puritan rules. When Kit travels to America to stay with her aunt she is very much a playful child. She is also a natural being.
When Kit arrives to live with her aunt she is shocked to learn how the people live and the restrictions their religions impose on them. She befriends a young woman who others consider to be a witch because of her love of nature.
Kit learns how to grow up through the book and to learn to face controversy. By the end of the book she has become a young woman who leaves the security of her aunt's family and heads off to her own adventure.
