(most of the information on this post is from this site)

"A spellbinding, beautifully written novel that moves between contemporary times and one of the most fascinating and disturbing periods in American history – 
the Salem witch trials.

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."

here is my goodreads review...

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! It reminded me a little of the DiVinci Code in that she was trying solve a puzzle with strange and unobvious clues along the way and someone trying to use her to do it. I loved the spooky feel it had and I thought the interludes of what happened in 1691 with the Salem witch trials was fascinating. Really well written and interesting. I loved it!
