Ten great books about witches

One title on Entertainment Weekly's list of ten wickedly great books about witches:
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, Katherine Howe

For all their publicity, the Salem witch trials didn’t involve any actual magic – just sexism and paranoia. At least that’s how it went in our world. When Howe’s protagonist starts investigating Salem’s past thanks to an enigmatic book, she finds more darkness and magic there than she imagined.
Read about another book on the list.
