Loyalty and trust would be two important themes in the Witch of Blackbird Pond.

Consider the reasons Kit is loyal and to whom she is loyal to.  How she does she learn about loyalty?  Also consider who is loyal to Kit and why.

Trust is another reoccurring theme - there are people Kit does not trust easily and people she does trust easily.  Consider who she trusts and why and who proves to ultimately be trustworthy and how they prove this.
