While clearing out her grandmother's cottage for sale, Connie Goodwin finds a hidden 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 . . .
Previously published in the UK as The Lost Book of Salem

Review:

The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane is the best historical fiction I've read in years, hands-down. The scenes set during the 1692 Salem witch trials are gripping, with meticulous period detail. The author does an amazing balancing act between the Colonial storyline and the incredibly compelling present-day plot--when you finish one section, you want to race ahead to the next. It's been a thrill to work with such a talented author." -- Leslie Wells

About the Author:
