Harvard graduate student Connie Goodwin needs to spend her summer doing research for her doctoral dissertation. But when her mother asks her to handle the sale of Connie's grandmother's abandoned home near Salem, she can't refuse. As she is drawn deeper into the mysteries of the family house, Connie discovers an ancient key within a seventeenth-century Bible. The key contains a yellowing fragment of parchment with a name written upon it: Deliverance Dane. This discovery launches Connie on a quest--to find out who this woman was and to unearth a rare artifact of singular power: a physick book, its pages a secret repository for lost knowledge.

I think I would have enjoyed the printed version of this book better. The narrator's New England accent got on my nerves. The historical elements and connections in the story are interesting but neither the plot nor characters were sufficiently complex to hold my attention.

A great story based around the Salem Witch hunts and a book of spells and recipes handed down over generations.

Well written with a great narrator!
