The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Kathrine Howe
THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2016
Genre: Historical Fiction
I’m taking a break from Eddings and the Mallorean.
If you read A Discovery of Witches and found you disliked it, I highly recommend this one. No, there isn’t any vampires, weird time traveling or goddess incarnates. It’s about a young woman who discovers a mystery behind the Salem Witch trials and decides to get to the bottom of it, and is searching for a long lost Shadow Book.
This appealed to the history nerd in me and it was wasn’t bogged down by fluffy crap writing. The lauguage was a bit much at the begining but you tend not to notice it later in the book as you become engrossed in the story. The history of the Salem witch trials has obviously been well assessed but this book was definitely one of the better ones.
There is a bit of a love story but it doesn’t engross the whole story. It’s about coming into your own and embracing who you are.
I highly recommend this one.
