The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs: A Novel by Katherine Howe

 

The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs: A Novel
by Katherine Howe

The story is full of academic research and family history but is never dull. It is a wonderful story of family and love, with a little magic thrown in.
~The Book’s the Thing

Compelling in a more scholarly way, THE DAUGHTERS OF TEMPERANCE HOBBS tells an interesting tale of witchcraft and one family’s fight to survive.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs has a fatal curse, a concealed spell, an antique skeleton key, a spellbinding tome, a magical lineage, and daring witches.
~The Avid Reader

The characters that almost step off the page and the superb plot make it a gripping read and I recommend it without any reservation to anyone who enjoys a good story.
~Ascroft, eh?

. . .I read THE DAUGHTERS OF TEMPERANCE HOBB for a book blog tour and loved it, racing gleefully to find other novels by Ms. Howe . . .
~The Haunted Reading Room

Connie’s race against time and death – just like Temperance Hobbs’ before her – provided all the drama needed – along with plenty of compulsion to keep the reader in a race to get to the very last page.
~Reading Reality

Witches, Witchcraft and Salem have always held my interest, and that is what drew me to this book . . .
~eBook Addicts

I loved the accounts of the dissertation struggles and the history of the evolution of white magic, particularly in colonial New England . . .

New York Times bestselling author Katherine Howe returns to the world of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane with a bewitching story of a New England history professor who must race against time to free her family from a curse

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.
