The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane

Set in both 1991 and 16th century Massachusetts, this book is appealing on several fronts. The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane successfully combines historical fiction, the Salem witch trials, and romance, for a good read with substance.

Cambridge graduate student Connie Goodwin moves to the rundown family home in Marblehead, Massachusetts for the summer. Connie finds an old key and a small piece of paper in a family Bible, with the words “Deliverance Dane” scrawled on it, and begins an investigation into its source. Soon after, strange events begin to occur. Flashbacks to Connie’s ancestors and events in the early American witchcraft era are seamlessly interwoven into the story.

I listened to the audiobook version of this title, read by Katherine Kellgren, and highly recommend it.
