The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane
Title: The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane
Author: Katherine Howe
While readying her grandmother’s abandoned home for sale, Connie Goodwin discovers an ancient key in a seventeenth-century Bible with a scrap of parchment bearing the name Deliverance Dane. In her quest to discover who this woman was and seeking a rare artifact, a physick book, Connie begins to feel haunted by visions of the long-ago witch trials and fears that she may be more tied to Salem’s past than she could have imagined.
A fresh present-day story infused with an original take on popular history. Forget broomsticks and pointy hats; here are witches that could well be walking among us today. This debut novel flows with poetic charm and eloquence that achieves high literary merit while concocting a gripping supernatural puzzler.
