Connie Goodwin, like many young women, has issues with her mother. So when Grace asks her daughter to interrupt her doctoral research at Harvard to go to Marblehead for the summer and ready her grandmother's house to be sold, Connie wonders why she agreed.

And that was before she walked into the ancient cottage that has no electricity.

Connie's knowledge of Colonial history, her chosen field of study, comes in handy as she learns the secrets of the past occupants of the house, one of whom was tried in the Salem witch trials. As Connie digs deeper into the past, she finds herself being catapulted into a world of witchery and magic, the very things her own mother has made her run far and fast from.

THE PHYSICK BOOK OF DELIVERANCE DANE has it all: believable characters, a love story, friendship, and family connections as well as curses. It is a well-written first novel that weaves the author's personal ties with the era into an incredibly convincing story.

I put off buying this book because I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the reviews and advertisements. It did live up to them. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Just enough history to make you think, action to keep things moving, and emotion to keep you involved. I agree with one reviewer who compared it to the Da Vinci Code. The theme brought together how a population was treated in our history and presented the same situations and people in a new light. Good book!

I really love this book. It is a nice twist on the Salem Witch type stories, I loved the main characters and the settings. As soon as I finished it I looked to see what else Katherine Howe had written!

I enjoyed this book very much. I like a bit of supernatural every once in a while; and since I've been to Salem and learned about the witch trials, this story line appealed to me. I could picture the places written about in this book, and that helped me to "escape" into the story.

This book was great-- a new take on the Salem witch trials and a very interesting premise. It was well written. There may be Witches but that doesn't need to be a bad thing.
