    Connie's mother asks her to sell an abandoned house once owned by her grandmother in Salem, Mass. Relunctantly, Connie moves to the small town and inhabits the crumbling, ancient house, trying to restore it to a semblance of order. Curious things start to happen when Connie finds the name "Deliverance Dane" on a yellowed scrap of paper and begins to have visions of a long ago woman condemned for practicing "physick," or herbal healing, on her neighbors in 1690s Salem.

    Darinda says: "Love it!"
    "Interesting. Nice read."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane the most enjoyable?

    This book was well written. One can see that it was written by somebody who has taken the time to research the subject. I like that. It was educational for me too. I have always been curious about the Salem Witch trial, now I know a little more about it and the history of that time era.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane?

    I like the Interlude parts. Reading about the way the people in the 17th century think.


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The audio reader accent during the 17th century era. I would have had a hard time reading the book just by the spelling of the written words. Very nice accent.


    If you could take any character from The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would like to be with Deliverance. She had the thinking of an old soul. She probably would not say a lot but if one looked in her eyes, there would be plenty to read in there.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was slow. But I am a patient reader. Once you get through the whole book, I found that it was a good read. I read it in the summer while vacationing. I enjoyed it.
