My Rating: 5/5
Short Summary: Connie Goodwin is working on her dissertation, while also attempting to prepare her grandmother’s abandoned house for sale over the summer. She discovers a family secret when she finds a key and a piece of paper with the words “Deliverance Dane” on it. Curiosity gets the better of her and she begins to uncover her family history in relation to Salem Witch Trials.
My Review: One of my favorite books of all time, this book is amazing on the inside as it is beautiful on the outside. The cover of the book makes this book irresistible to pick up and inspect, and the characters within are well developed. I picked this book up by chance at a bookstore, read a few pages, and then decided to risk hating the book by buying it on the spot. I’m so glad I did judge this book by its cover!
Katherine Howe tells multiple tales within the story, giving the reader a chance to piece together the secrets of the past with Connie as she experiences the witchcraft and wonder behind her family history and her own abilities.
I bought this book for my own enjoyment. I highly recommend you do the same!
