Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 08-04-09: The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read (without spoilers, of course) to entice you to read the book.


This week my teaser is from The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe, page 152:
Still the whispers circulated in the mouths of the people seated behind her, occasionally spilling out whole words and fragments that Mercy could just overhear. 'Disappeared,' she thought she heard, and 'little child' and 'neigh distracted.' Also one word, more often than all the others, the word she dreaded: 'witch.'



It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

I'm in Salem, Marblehead, and Boston Massachusetts alternating between the 17th and 20th centuries as I put together the story of accused witch, Deliverance Dane.
