I loved this book. I'm ready for more by this author! Great characters and an absolute fun read!

This was a quick, engaging read and I liked the historical aspect, though I wasn't a fan of the writing style and found it a bit distracting. ( )

This was a great story of mystery and intrigue. The all-female perspective was new for me but I rather enjoyed a narrative voice unlike my own. A few scenes were uncomfortable coming from an adult perspective but no worries, all of the resolutions are very satisfying and in some cases cheeky. The reveal of the history involving Nella and Eliza is done in an interesting way as Caroline navigates her own journey wrought with mystery and thrills. Would definitely recommend it to any mystery or thriller-loving reader. ( )

What an absolute dream this story was, at least one of my personal dreams, to stumble upon an obscure piece of history and mystery. I was absolutely transported with this book to one place in two different time periods and I just want to go back and sit in the apothecary shop and observe, a fly on the wall.

Such a delightful cast with a wide range of characters, from preteen to elderly, everyone had an important part to play and they were all beautifully put together. With a little bit of relatable drama, some historical details, and a lot of imagination, a wonderful story unfolds. My only complaint is that it wasn’t longer.

I have always been fascinated by early medicine and pharmacopeia, the use of herbs and plants in healing, so this book was such a treat. Additionally, what a joy it was to find some recipes (minus the poison) for tea and cookies in the back of this book. I can’t wait to try them out. ( )

"I SWEAR AND PROMISE BEFORE
GOD, AUTHOR AND CREATOR OF ALL THINGS...

NEVER TO TEACH UNGRATEFUL PERSONS OR FOOLS
THE SECRETS AND MYSTERIES OF THE TRADE...

NEVER TO DIVULGE THE SECRETS CONFIDED TO ME...
NEVER TO ADMINISTER POISONS...

TO DISAVOW AND SHUN AS A PESTILENCE THE SCANDALOUS
 AND PERNICIOUS OF QUACKS,
EMPIRICS AND ALCHYMISTS...

AND TO KEEP NO STALE OR BAD DRUG IN MY SHOP.

MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS ME
SO LONG AS I CONTINUE TO OBEY THESE THINGS!"

---ANCIENT APOTHECARY'S OATH

This glass object---delicate and yet still intact, somewhat like myself---was proof that I could be brave, adventurous, and do hard things on my own.
"First, there was trust. Then, there was betrayal. You cannot have one without the other. You cannot be betrayed by someone you do not trust."
History doesn't record the intricacies of woman's relationships with one another; they're not to be uncovered.
