    Mitch Horowitz presents a meticulously researched, compulsively readable history of the mystical and spiritual experience in our country. Focusing on the impact that the 19-century movements of Freemasonry, Spiritualism, and transcendentalism have had on America, Horowitz portrays a colorful cast of characters as he explains the origins of the Ouija board, the political influence of Spiritualism on the Senate, and the source of the mysterious slogan on the back of the dollar bill.

    "Not so good"
    Overall

    I was really looking forward to this book. I did learn that the occult was a much larger part of life in the United States than I thought it ever was.
    The part I didn't like was that the author seemed to provide lists of people involved in the occult. What I would have been interested in is how the occult movements affected society.

    Set in the Regency period, this is a classic tale of misunderstood love and an arranged marriage.

    This is different than some of her books. The heroine is not beautiful. It is still a great book. Love the authenticity of her stories.
