Reviews

"The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs combines exacting historical research with compelling, imaginative storytelling. There is real magic at work in this book, which illuminates, like a candle in the dark, the enduring courage, wisdom, and searing power of women, passed down through countless generations."
--Kathleen Kent, New York Times bestselling author of The Heretic's Daughter

"Katherine Howe invites us into a richly imagined, intricate world of family curses and secrets waiting to be unlocked. Elegant, twisty, and timely, The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs has it all."
--Matthew Pearl, New York Times bestselling author of The Dante Chamber and The Dante Club

"Katherine Howe is back and in fine, bewitching form. I relished criss-crossing centuries as Connie Goodwin--equal parts scholar, sleuth, and sorceress--tackles the mystery of a curse on the women of her notorious lineage, racing to break the spell before it breaks her."
--Julia Glass, National Book Award-winning author of Three Junes and A House Among the Trees
