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 domestic healing arts--home recipes and medicines--and the women fluent in those skills. But beyond her studies, Connie harbors a secret: she is the direct descendant not only of Deliverance Dane, a woman tried as a witch in Salem, but of an entire bloodline of women 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 startling realization that her fiancé's life is in danger, she must hurry to solve the mystery behind a centuries-old deadly cycle in order to save him. Flashing back through American history to gather learnings from supernaturally gifted women, The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs affectingly captures not only the special bond that links Connie's matriarchal line but also makes plain the many challenges to women's survival across the decades--and the risks some must take to keep their families alive. --,Provided by publisher.
