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?

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.
