    Rating: 3.0 Witchy Stars This is the second installment of Katherine Howe?s ?Physick Book? series. The first book in the series is The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane which is on my reading list, but I have not actually read it yet. After finishing her new book, The Daughters...

    This one was ok for me. I found Connie drove me nuts with how self involved she was. I hated how she treated Sam for most of the book. It wasn't until she realized she could do something to "keep" him that she started to actually talk to him and let him know what was going on. ...

    Well, okay then. That sums up how I feel. I loved The Physick Book of Delivery Dane, which came out a decade ago, and so I was excited to get an early copy of this followup. And then I started reading, and my excitement turned to annoyance. What we have with this book is a mind-n...

    This was my first Katherine Howe novel. I adored Connie Goodwin and her imperfect life that is rooted in a line of witches dating back to the late 1600s. This is not a light read. It has a great deal of historical information with terminology that can be hard to follow if you do not ha...

    This book was the perfect witchy summer read that I didn't know I needed. I have never read the first book in this series, but that didn't hinder my enjoyment or understanding of this at all. Connie thought she just had to worry about finishing her book, getting her tenure packet in, a...

    The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs is a sequel ten years in the making, following the author's 2009 debut novel The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, and the story itself picks up 10 years later too. Former graduate student Connie Goodwin is now a history professor at Northeastern Unive...

    It has been soooo long since I read The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane that at first I didn't recognize this as a continuation. I need to go back and re-read Deliverance Dane. Anyhow I love everything about this book. Taking place in the areas where my early ancestors first landed gr...

    The daughters or Temperance Hobbs picks up several years after the book The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane ends. Connie and Sam are still together and living in Boston while Connie is a young tenure track professor writing a book. Her area of expertise - the history of magic in Colon...

    I am, without pause, a fan of Katherine Howe. I?ve read her adult and young adult novels, and enjoyed each of them. As such, it will come as little surprise that I also quite liked The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs, her latest endeavor, a book featuring many of the same characters as...

    Fans of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane will surely love slipping back into the world of Connie Goodwin. Since the book is not set to be released until next year I wont comment on the storyline but, again, its nice to be back among the fictional world of my many times great grandm...

    I was very excited to see there was a new book by Katherine Howe featuring Constance Goodwin once again! The second book in the series is set in the year 2000 and Connie is now an assistant professor at Northeastern University. She is super busy working towards tenure while writing a b...

    #Edeweiss #TheDaughtersofTemperanceHobbs The novel is a bit historical, romantic, and familial all rolled up into a wonderful story. I thoroughly enjoyed the female relationships in the novel. The generations of family and history of Connie Goodwin's family are one of the best pieces ...

    It?s really hard for me to corral all my thoughts into a sensible review this time. I liked some things about this book but hated others. A few parts would get 4 stars from me, but several would get 1 star, so I guess I?ll settle for 2.75 stars, rounded up. Somewhere between it was...

    4 stars Katherine Howe can certainly write good books featuring witches. That's why I feel compelled to read her works. This book picks up 10 years after the book Deliverance Dane and features Connie and Sam living together in Boston. Connie is working to achieve tenure at her univers...

    Katherine Howe writes the exact type of book I like to read. It?s a bit historical with elements of romance, mystery, and the supernatural all rolled into one beautiful, witchy story. As a fan of the Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, I was excited to jump back into the world of Conni...

    For lack of a better term this book was magical. This book was filled with incredible fantasy and vivid scenery. Perhaps what I loved the most was that you can visit some of the places mentioned most aptly Salem. It may be just me but when fantasy books are placed in real locations you...

    I had the fortunate chance to read an advance readers copy. Wow! I was immediately pulled back into the world of Connie Goodwin. Howe does not disappoint with this thrilling chase to solve a centuries long curse. The novel starts out 10 years later with Connie approaching tenure at ...

    I am always leery when I am told that I don't have to start off with the first book in a series since they can be both read as standalones. I ended up being a little bit lost since there are references to events that happened before. Also, I had a hard time feeling engaged with the pro...

    I rarely DNF a book, but I had to with this one. I tried, but it?s 36% and NOTHING and I mean ABSOLUTELY NOTHING has happened. This reads like a journal of post grad students complaining about how hard post grad is, fighting for primary sources and living on ramen noodles. I am very ...

    This was a surprisingly good book, with plenty for scholars, historians, and academics alike. I took my time with The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs, savored every page. This is not necessarily a story about witchcraft per se, it is a story about a professor who has family ties to t...
