Connie is looking forward to starting work on her graduate thesis over the summer, when her mother asks her to sell an abandoned house once owned by her grandmother in Salem, Mass. Relunctantly, Connie moves to the small town and inhabits the crumbling, ancient house, trying to restore it to a semblance of order.

Curious things start to happen when Connie finds the name Deliverance Dane on a yellowed scrap of paper inside an old Bible, and begins to have visions of a long ago woman condemned for practicing physick, or herbal healing, on her neighbors in 1690s Salem.

Interspersed with modern-day sections are chapters on the actual witch trials, revealing the fascinating story of Deliverance Dane and how she got caught up in the tragic events. Connie meets an intriguing young steeplejack named Sam, who's also interested in the history of the area. But just as Connie starts to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding Deliverance's identity, Sam has a horrifying accident, and Connie has to figure out a way to save him that involves an ancient and mystical cure. And to do that, she needs to locate the actual physick book once owned by Deliverance Dane herself.

Immediately compelling, with powerful historic insight and detail, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane is that rare find - a literary first novel with a very commercial premise and pacing. Download and start listening now!

    " Great characters and a great premise - I really enjoyed it, but still found it very predictable. A little too heavy handed on the foreshadowing for my taste. The characters and history carried me through, but I would have liked to have been left wondering/questioning at least once "

    " I liked this book. There is something intriguing to me about the Salem witch trials, and this book was filled with information. It was a little hard to get into, but once it got rolling, it was easy to pick up and finish. "
