The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe

No photo art yet for this, but the advanced reading copy is beautiful! The book looks old and covered in vines and very, very mysterious. Connie is a doctoral student in American history, specializing in colonial American history. At the beginning of her thesis topic search, she finds out that her grandmother had a house down the road from Salem. Over the summer, Connie has to clean the house to get it ready for sale. But, Connie likes it. And starts to hunt for a mysterious book of recipes that was used by Deliverance Dane, a woman who was excommunicated from the church back in 1692. Those of you who know your history know that 1692 means Salem Witch Trials! :) This is much better than The Heretic's Daughter. Think about The Da Vinci Code.
