This story told in two time periods. Current Time Caroline Parcewell has recently found out her husband was having an emotional affair. She takes their anniversary trip to England solo, to decide what she wants to do about life now. On a chance mudlarking adventure she finds a glass jar with a bear engraving. As someone who used to study history, she is intrigued and starts digging for answers.

At the end of the 1700s, down a dark black alley, and hidden behind a wall is an apothecary that specializes in teaching bad husbands a lesson. Many times that lesson ends in death. When Nella was young her mother ran the shop that was known as a place of healing. But Nella was burnt, and burnt bad, and sees the work she does as a salve to her own emotional healing, and to others as well.

But death is a funny thing. Eventually, it becomes suspicious. A twelve year old girl named Eliza Fanning is both a danger, a savior, and a problem.

This book is an emotional roller coaster. It’s not really this reader's type of book. There were many times I just wanted it to end, but it felt like it was dragging on. I felt many of the events at the end were not surprising, but expected. The stories between time points were okay, and was done well with switching between Eliza, Nelle, and Caroline's points of views. There is a bit of magic talk, along with medicine, and crazy events. Overall I thought it was a good book. It will be read in book clubs for years to come. I can see it being a high check out title at my library. But for this reader, it was just ho hum. But I do thank the publisher for the book, the bag, and the audio book. I can see why so much umph was put behind the marketing for this book. ( )

I enjoyed this book. A woman goes to London alone to celebrate her 10th anniversary after discovering that her husband is having affair. Upon arrival she goes on a mudlarking tour, picking up things that the Thames has washed ashore, and find a small mysterious bottle with strange markings. She begins to investigate and is led to the story of an apothecary who lived centuries earlier. The story alternates between modern London and the apothecary's tale. It's quite engaging! ( )

I found this book on Hoopla under "recommended for you"--usually those recommendations are simple additional books by the authors I have listened to. Some are actually books that I have read on paper. I had never heard of this or the author, so gave it a listen.

The story moves back and forth between 1791 and present day. In the present, Caroline finds a bottle on a mudlarking tour of the Thames, she goes to the British library to try researching it and the bear inscribed on the side. In the 1791 storyline, we learn about Nella's apothecary business and meet Eliza, who wants to be her apprentice. We find out how that bottle ended up in the Thames.

I was a history major just like Caroline, so I totally get her desire to learn more. This book was interesting and a fine listen. I doubt I'll remember it in a year.

There was some sloppy editing that was obvious even on audio. If you can see a door hinge, the door opens TOWARD you, you don't push it in. And Caroline does not need a librarian to look up London death records for her. They are all available online, for free, and totally searchable. And they have been for years. She could do it on her phone (though a computer is preferable!). ( )

In chapters alternating between past and present from multiple characters, Sarah Penner builds suspenseful tension as the fates of three women hurtle toward crisis. Gripping writing with chapter-ending teasers; intricate plotting; an easy and fast read. ( )

Pandemic read. So much that I liked about this book, in both timelines. ( )
