This is a story about a woman and her dog sent to clean out her estranged, and now deceased, grandmother's house. While doing so, she comes across her step-grandfather's manuscript, his attempt to recreate a book he once read and is now missing. Supposedly, the man had come across a non-existent hill that led to strange rock carvings and to something even worse beyond. With huge references to Machen's The White People, Kingfisher spins a bizarre tale that fills you with dread at every turn.

Connie has always known the women in her family to be odd. Magic seems to follow them and lives have been built on the healing gifts that they each possess. Though full of the charm herself, Connie has dedicated her life to the academics that revolve around her history, deeply rooted in the witch trials of Salem. She’s on track for tenure and her long-awaited book is in the works but when she finds herself with child, she must work to end a centuries-old spell that stems from her mysterious relative, Temperance. Full of lure and wit, The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs was a cozy read that I couldn’t put down.
