Interesting ray that bounces between the 1690's and 1991. Connie, a grad student, is sent by her mother to clean out her grandmother's creepy old house over the summer, where she meets Sam, a steeplejack. Her academic advisor is a skunk and wants to steal her research...and she discovers "receipts" for spells which seem to work, because she finds she's from a family of witches! Kind of reminded me of a Jodi Picoult book, where at the end you're not sure what was real and what wasnt'.
