author of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane Connie Goodwin is an expert on America's fractured past with witchcraft A young tenure track professor in Boston she's earned career success by studying

history to the lives of certain supernaturally gifted women The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs affectingly reveals not only the special bond that unites one particular matriarchal line but also explores the many challenges to women's survival across the decades and the risks some women are forced to take to protect what they love most I was really looking forward to this book especially because I had loved The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane So far I am about 13 through and I am ready to drop it not to be picked up again Connie is absolutely unbelievable as a character and I am tired of reading about the stress of grading papers and throwing around the names of Harvard and Northeastern She is chaotic confusing and naive and I don t know how she got to the point in her career

up approximately nine years after the events of her debut novel The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane and returns to Connie Goodwin now a professor at Boston s Northeastern University who must work to counter a curse that follows her family using the aforementioned physick book that she discovered during her PhD candidacy This curse threatens Sam the steeplejack Connie met in her graduate school days and who is now her partner Connie gains new insight into folklore through Zazi one of her advisees who specializes in southwestern witchcraft traditions Howe who studied witchcraft and served as the editor of The Penguin Book of Witches references various historical witchcraft traditions in a manner that adds a welcome touch of realism to the fantasy genre Further her depiction of academia will ring true for those who have pursued graduate education in the humanitiesFor example as Connie attends a graduate level symposium a grad student delivers a paper so rife with jargon that it had essentially amounted to a long recitation of the same bibliography that all grad students recite when they first discover critical theory Butler Kristeva Lacan Derrida Foucault pg 103 104 In the previous novel Howe portrayed Connie as working on her dissertation in 1991 without the aid of computer archival research In advancing the plot to the year 2000 she s able to comment on the changes computers introduced to academia writing Computers man They made history research so fast Connie almost couldn t believe it pg 126 At one point Howe perfectly summarizes the PhD process in a single sentence writing There was so little in this process that was under anyone s control pg 121As a PhD candidate I find Howe s portrayal of academia remarkably accurate This of course results from Howe s own experience in higher education I read her debut novel just prior to beginning my PhD and it prepared me for some of the culture of higher education just as I find this novel an accurate depiction of ABD life though technology has changed since the novel s setting in early 2000 Further Howe s depiction of interdepartmental politics pgs 12 14 97 98 209 211 and graduate student politics pg 253 254 while fictional and condensed for the sake of narrative will resonate with grad students and postdocs In her author s note Howe argues of the decline in witchcraft prosecutions in the eighteenth century As common households in Britain and the colonies found it easier to secure food and goods adjudicating the bewitchment of calves or butter was no longer of the mortal import that it had been in the 1600s Economics rather than changed belief pushed witchcraft off the legal docket pg 334 She also admits to where she left the story subjective at the end for the reader s benefit though Howe explains how even that subjectivity is based on historical and pharmaceutical evidence Through these notes Howe plays a key role in fostering an interest in historical scholarship with her novels
