Great book day-2 more books!

March 27th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books

Today was a great book day but now it’s so difficult to choose what to read next.  Like I mentioned in my last post I have 5 library books and I just bought City of Glass by Cassandra Clare.

and when I got home UPS left a delivery containing The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe, courtesy of the Barnes and Noble First Look program.

Description: 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.

As the pieces of Deliverance’s harrowing story begin to fall into place, Connie is haunted by visions of the long-ago witch trials, and she begins to fear that she is more tied to Salem’s dark past then she could have ever imagined.
