Description

A magical bloodline. A family curse. Can Connie break the spell before it shatters her future?

A bewitching story of a New England history professor who must race against time to free her family from a curse, by Katherine Howe, New York Times best-selling 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 the history of magic in colonial America - especially women’s home recipes and medicines - and by exposing society's threats against women fluent in those skills. But beyond her studies, Connie harbors a secret: She is the direct descendant of a woman tried as a witch in Salem, an ancestor whose abilities were far more magical than the historical record shows. 

When a hint from her mother and clues from her research lead Connie to the shocking realization that her partner’s life is in danger, she must race to solve the mystery behind a hundreds’-years-long deadly curse. 

Flashing back through American 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.

Loved it!

I purchased this book in audio form. I am not sure if I would have loved it otherwise to be honest. The narrator was great. The plot twist were very good.

Good!

I thought this was a great follow-up to the first book. I might recommend re-reading or reviewing the first book before listening to this one. Very helpful!

Nice Sequel

I enjoyed this story. It is intelligent. Nice narrator. The modern part about college life is quite realistic. I got a Ph.D. And the whole process really was brutal.

Terrific storytelling

This is the second book by this author whom I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. She weaves a great tale and wonderful local color of New England and the Boston academic scene all interwoven with the mysteries of generations of a family of strong women with the gift. Very entertaining and well narrated. I highly recommend both books and look forward to more from this author.

Just what I didn’t know I wanted

The reader’s voice took a little getting used to. I don’t think it’s the same narrator as the first book in the series so that was odd. It’s been a while since I’ve listened to the physic book of deliverance Dane so I might be wrong but it still took some getting used to. I really loved the story though.

I hope this turns into a series 🖤

I love the way this story unfolded. I loved the historical fiction tied into a modern story. I fell in love with the characters and didn’t want the story to end. Honestly, when it was over s cried a few happy tears. The best part is that the characters have so much mire story to tell! I really really hope we get several more books with these women!
