The Apothecary's Daughter

The Apothecary's Daughter

by Julie Klassen

Wanda Cohen: This is one of those detailed historical fictions that manages to give lots of information along with a good story. Lillian Haswell is an apothecary's daughter. She's intelligent, kind and pretty. She yearns for more than standing behind the counter following her father's directions. She isn't allowed to become an apothecary herself because she's a woman. Her life changes when she has the opportunity to leave her small town an go to London with her Aunt and Uncle. She is presented to society and relishes all the parties, fun, and the chance for the perfect match. In the middle of all the fun and excitement, her life changes again when her father becomes ill and she's called home to care for him and try to save his shop. How will she manage to run the apothecary without her father? What will become of the relationships started in London? Is there a man she's overlooked at home? The writing is good. This is a solid story. It's interesting and has a few unexpected twists. I would say check this out of the library or borrow it from a friend. Although the Amazon readers gave it 4 1/2 stars, I'm giving it 3.
