Getting past the unusual design of the book, I found Connie’s and Deliverance’s stories very interesting. This is a fiction novel that has some historical facts about the Salem witch trials. I was expecting the historical element, but the suspense element was a nice surprise. Connie is working on her dissertation and comes across an old “recipe” book that connects her to the past and to Deliverance Dane, an accused Salem witch. Little does Connie know that the book will put her in danger as well.
