Lilly Haswell remembers everything — whether she wants to, or not . . .
As Lilly toils in her father's apothecary, preparing herbs and remedies by rote, she is haunted by memories of her mother's disappearance. Villagers whisper the tale, but her father refuses to discuss it. All the while, she dreams of the world beyond — of travel and adventure and romance.
When a relative offers to host her in London, Lilly discovers the pleasures and pitfalls of fashionable society and suitors, as well as clues about her mother. But will Lilly find what she is searching for — the truth of the past and a love for the future?
Blending romance, family drama, and fascinating historical detail, The Apothecary's Daughter is a novel to savor and share.
The romance in this is a little bit crazy but fun. The research that this author did is amazing and impressive. I am SO glad I didn't live back then!
The romance was adorable. The heroine has a vibrant personality and falls humanly short at understanding her own faults. The author wove Christianity into the novel without pushing it down the throat.
