I have to say that I am not quite sure how I feel about this book. The story started slow, got exciting in the middle, and fell apart in the end. In the book you meet Connie who is a Harvard grad looking to write her dissertation. Connie ends up having to clean out her Grandmothers old house and it is there that she finds a key and a name, Deliverance Dane. It is with these two items and a push from her mentor that she decides to research the Salem witch trials.
The story has an interesting plot I just believe that Howe could have taken the ending in a different direction. I also had trouble deciphering a couple of the words throughout the dialogue and even though I understand why she spelled the words with regard to somebody accent I would have preferred a cleaner text. I gave this book 3 stars because even though it was interesting it is not a book I would remember to recommend.
