Women's Fiction Historical
A spellbinding, beautifully written novel that moves
between contemporary times and one of the most fascinating
and disturbing periods in American history-the Salem witch
Harvard graduate student Connie Goodwin needs
to spend her summer doing research for her doctoral
dissertation. But when her mother asks her to handle the
sale of Connie's grandmother's abandoned home near Salem,
she can't refuse. As she is drawn deeper into the
mysteries of the family house, Connie discovers an ancient
key within a seventeenth-century Bible. The key contains a
yellowing fragment of parchment with a name written upon
it: Deliverance Dane. This discovery launches Connie on a
quest--to find out who this woman was and to unearth a
rare artifact of singular power: a physick book, its pages
a secret repository for lost knowledge.
As the pieces
of Deliverance's harrowing story begin to fall into place,
Connie is haunted by visions of the long-ago witch trials,
and she begins to fear that she is more tied to Salem's
dark past then she could have ever imagined.
with astonishing conviction and grace, The Physick Book
of Deliverance Dane travels seamlessly between the
witch trials of the 1690s and a modern woman's story of
mystery, intrigue, and revelation.

I can't help but wonder what they will look back on our times, and see as unbelievable as the witch trials seem to us.
