This summer, The Physick Book is magic." --USA Today "I thought I had found another Alice Hoffman as I began Katherine Howe's debut novel . . . It has definite Hoffman vibes, but with a little Da Vinci Code, Stephen King, and academic discourse thrown in to create a charming and different mix . . . Howe is masterful." --Portland Oregonian "This isn't the same old hang-the-sorceror tale. It has a bedeviling twist." --New York Daily News
