The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs by Katherine Howe – Blog Tour & Giveaway


Synopsis:

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.

I loved The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, so I was very excited to get a sequel. I was also very glad to find that this book easily stands alone. It had been a while since I read book #1, and I really didn’t remember as much as I thought I would.

Now a professor rather than a student, Connie must learn how to stop an age-old curse to save the life of her partner Sam. 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.
