Kit had come to Westbrook, CT from the island of Barbados. She was a loyal citizen of a British controlled territory. She was very loyal to King James and didn't understand why or how the people of the colonies could question their King or his rules. She often commented to Mercy, Judith, and Nate that she didn't understand why the people would talk so harshly and risk treason against King James. It was Nate that explained to Kit the situation and this story line is never fully developed. We know where all the characters in the novel stand in their loyalties, but there is no resolution.
