  • "Connie Goodwin ist fasziniert von den Hexenverfolgungen im Neuengland des 17.Jahrhunderts. Auch ihre Doktorarbeit befasst sich mit diesem Thema, und in den Kirchenregistern von Salem hofft sie, Originaldokumente aus jener Zeit zu finden. Bei ihren Recherchen lernt Connie den jungen Restaurator Sam kennen, der ihr prompt seine Hilfe anbietet. Doch den eigenartigsten Fund macht Connie im Haus ihrer verstorbenen Grossmutter, das in der Nähe von Salem etwas abgelegen in einem kleinen Küstenstädtchen liegt: Hier entdeckt Connie ein vergilbtes Pergament, das sie auf die Spur eines alten Buches mit sonderbaren Formeln und Rezepten bringt. Als sich Connie näher mit dem Buch beschäftigt, kommt es plötzlich zu rätselhaften Ereignissen. Offenbar wohnt den alten Rezepten eine magische Kraft inne - und das bringt nicht nur Connie, sondern auch Sam in höchste Gefahr... (Quelle: Umschlagtext)."

  • ""A fresh present-day story infused with an original take on popular history. Forget broomsticks and pointy hats; here are witches that could well be walking among us today. This debut novel flows with poetic charm and eloquence that achieves high literary merit while concocting a gripping supernatural puzzler. Katherine Howe's talent is spellbinding." --Matthew Pearl, author of The Poe Shadow and The Dante Club 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. 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. Written with astonishing conviction and grace, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane travels seamlessly between the witch trials of the 1690s and a modern woman's story of mystery, intrigue, and revelation."@en
  • "Sie trennen Jahrhunderte- aber ein magisches Erbe verbindet sie Connie Goodwin ist eine hervorragende Studentin der Harvard Universität und schreibt gerade an ihrer Doktorarbeit über Sitten und Gebräuche im Amerika des 17. Jahrhunderts. Ihr Spezialgebiet sind die Hexenverfolgungen in Salem. Als Connies Mutter Grace sie eines Tages bittet, das halbverfallene Haus der Großmutter in Marblehead, Massachusetts, in Ordnung zu bringen, ist Connie wenig begeistert. Mit gemischten Gefühlen reist sie in das Küstenstädtchen, das nicht weit von Salem entfernt liegt. Immerhin hofft Connie, in den alten Kirchenregistern von Salem etwas über die Hexenprozesse zu finden, und ist froh, dass ihr der gutaussehende Restaurator Sam, den sie in der Kirche antrifft, bei den Recherchen helfen möchte. Kurz darauf entdeckt Connie im verwunschenen Haus der Großmutter ein vergilbtes Pergament, das sie auf die Spur eines alten Buches mit sonderbaren Formeln und Rezepten bringt. Als sie ihrer Mutter von dem Folianten erzählt, ist diese nicht überrascht: Grace weiß von dem Buch, das lange im Familienbesitz war, und warnt ihre Tochter, sich damit zu beschäftigen. Gemeinsam mit Sam kommt Connie schließlich einem gefährlichen Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur? und entdeckt plötzlich seltsame Fähigkeiten an sich selbst? Ein großer Frauenroman, der im heutigen Neuengland und im 17. Jahrhundert spielt."
