A crime lost to time. A secret buried deep. One book unlocks an unimaginable truth. Salem, Massachusetts, 1681. Fear and suspicion lead a small town to unspeakable acts. Marblehead, Massachusetts, 1991. A young woman is about to discover that she is tied to Salem in ways she never imagined. "A sensational debut novel . . . carries on every page Howe's unique passion, wit, intelligence, and spirit."
--Matthew Pearl, bestselling author of The Dante Club and The Poe Shadow "A terrific debut novel . . . a captivating thriller of the hidden powers of women throughout the centuries."
--Boston Globe "Literary alchemy . . . powerful enough to deliver a charming summer read."
--Christian Science Monitor "Howe pairs a scholarly search for a missing book with the thrill of spine-tingling witchery."
--Dallas Morning News "If you need some magic in your life . . . lose yourself in The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane."
--Real Simple "A devilishly delightful read."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Compulsively readable . . . The novel is a page-turner, but the characters, not the plot, dominate." --Denver Post "A witch story that will leave you spellbound . . . Once in a while, a new writer offers up a hypnotic tale of the supernatural that has the publishing world quivering with excitement. In 2005 it was Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian; in 2006 it was Diane Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale. This summer, The Physick Book is magic."
--USA Today "I thought I had found another Alice Hoffman as I began Katherine Howe's debut novel . . . It has definite Hoffman vibes, but with a little Da Vinci Code, Stephen King, and academic discourse thrown in to create a charming and different mix . . . Howe is masterful."
--Portland Oregonian "This isn't the same old hang-the-sorceror tale. It has a bedeviling twist."
--New York Daily News
