The main conflicts of this novel include Kit's struggle to deal with her new home in New England, aconflict between the Puritan settlers and a Quaker woman they believe to be a witch (as they will soon accuse Kit of being), and then a second external conflict between the colonists who desire freedom from the English crown and the loyalists who are in allegiance to King James.  In the end, Kit finds a new life with someone who accepts her wholeheartedly, the accused Quaker woman is rescued and Kit is found innocent of witchcraft, and colonists are able to keep their charter, which preserves their independence from England.
