“While clearing out her grandmother’s cottage for sale, Connie Goodwin finds a parchment inscribed with the name Deliverance Dane. And so begins the hunt to uncover the woman behind the name, a hunt that takes her back to Salem in 1692 . . . and the infamous witchcraft trials.
But nothing is entirely as it seems and when Connie unearths the existence of Deliverance’s spell book, the Physick Book, the situation takes on a menacing edge as interested parties reveal their desperation to find this precious artefact at any cost.
What secrets does the Physick Book contain? What magic is scrawled across its parchment pages? Connie must race to answer these questions – and reveal the truth about Salem’s women – before an ancient family curse once more fulfils its dark and devastating prophecy . . .”
N.B. THE LOST BOOK OF SALEM is published in the US under the title THE PHYSICK BOOK OF DELIVERANCE DANE.
I read this book a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I read it in one day. I just got comfy on the sofa and whizzed through it.
I liked the characters and that allowed me to read it that quickly. They were easy to understand and I could relate to the main character in some way. I wanted to know what she would do and how she would handle things, so I couldn’t put it down.
The story is not complicated. There were a few parts where I got confused about how things could happen and why, but I just went with it and enjoyed the story for what it was. An adventure romance 🙂
