Deliverance Dane

My latest book is “The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane” by Katherine Howe.  So far so good!  The intertwining of the past and present flows real well and provides a good perspective on the former trials of women in Salem, Massachusets who dared to be independent, and thus deemed to be witches.  The background mystery, her developing talents and her relationship with her mother and friends feels real and interesting.  It leads me to want to know more about the period and the history behind this work of fiction.  Can’t wait to finish it!  It will be a good weekend read.

  1. I definitely want to read that book. It’s been sitting on my bookshelf in hardcover for a while now. Thanks for the recommendation. I envy you your weekend to read. This weekend for me is the busiest of the summer. Enjoy your reading time!

    1. I was going to have this as a weekend read, but it was so good I devoured it over lunch and dinner! Now I need to choose one for the weekend, maybe The Dragon Tattoo? I haven’t decided.
