The Apothecary's Daughter

The Apothecary's Daughter by Julie Klassen.

The Apothecary's DaughterSummery: Lillian Haswell has always wanted to see the world and have an adventure. She gets this yearning from her mother, she knows. But of course Lilly would never run away like she did. She hates to think about her mother...abandoning them. Now nearly at the age to decide what to do with herself she gets an offer from her mother's brother to come live in London for a while with him and his wife. There she is wooed by suitors and leads a lively life. Will she return to her small town and her father's apothecary shop where she found life dull? And what can she do but go back when she hears of their need for help?

Romance:suitors, a few kisses, talk of marriage, attraction, Thinking about someone, loving someone, flirting.
Inappropriate Romance: Breaking of wedding vows, illegitimate children.


Violence:Destroying a shop, yelling/arguments, slapping someone, death from a disease and old age.

Other:Diseases, mention of slight drinking.

What I Thought: A simple Jane Austen if you will. A bit slow starting, but I can guarantee you shall enjoy it if you are a Jane Austen time period lover. Perhaps even if not. Although it isn't the fasted of books, it is still lively and has it's mysteries.

Rating & Age:3 stars. 14+
