Title: The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane
Author: Katherine Howe
Great title, interesting premise.

I have been wanting to read this book since it was released in 2009. It's premise about a present day Harvard grad student and her mysterious connection to Salem, MA and the infamous witch trials immediately caught my attention. I am a little over halfway finished and so far I am not disappointed.
