Lillian Haswell, brilliant daughter of the local apothecary, yearns for more adventure and experience than life in her father's shop and their small village provides. She also longs to know the truth behind her mother's disappearance, which villagers whisper about but her father refuses to discuss. Opportunity comes when a distant aunt offers to educate her as a lady in London. Exposed to fashionable society and romance--as well as clues about her mother--Lilly is torn when she is summoned back to her ailing father's bedside. Women are forbidden to work as apothecaries, so to save the family legacy, Lilly will have to make it appear as if her father is still making all the diagnoses and decisions. But the suspicious eyes of a scholarly physician and a competing apothecary are upon her. As they vie for village prominence, three men also vie for Lilly's heart. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This book was okay to good. It was pretty predictable but if you like historical England stories this is the book for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha Hite | 2/8/2014

    " it was a good story and provided alot of historical detail about apothecaries which was interesting to me but I thought the ending was kind of anti-climactic "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 2/5/2014

    " I really liked this book. The way Lilly's view of the world changes from the beginning to the end of the story really resonated with me. I particularly liked the description of the big, wide world being distilled down to the few things that truly meant the most. This is something I will read again. I am still left with some unfinished business, however, and wish that an extra chapter or two had provided details. To use an analogy from the story, the reader spends the length of the novel climbing The Hill with Lilly but is not given more than a fleeting glimpse of the view from the top. I would have liked to savor the view for a few moments longer. "

    " Super long read for a disappointing payoff! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/21/2014

    " A fun, light read. Really a 3.5 star book if that were an option. I'll definitely read more from this author because it's nice to read just for entertainment's sake sometimes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/13/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 SandraE | 1/11/2014

    " I spent a lot of time conflicted about who she should end up with. It gave the book the little extra it needed to make it memorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 1/9/2014

    " So glad it was him... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mrs.b | 1/7/2014

    " Fun, passionate, historical fiction...I am so glad I was not born in the 17th century...I don't think I would have made it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Hogan | 10/19/2013

    " Free kindle book. A young woman who was trained by her father to be an apothcary, yearns to leave her small village and marry a gentleman. Not a page turner but read until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn Fisher | 10/12/2013

    " A little slow to start though I was surprised by the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen Kotula | 10/3/2013

    " The Apothecary's Daughter, while a bit predictable in its multiple love interests and twists and turns non the less has a sweet ending and message that touches the heart. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 9/21/2013

    " Was a bit slow and had a tend a tendency to drag on and on. While I enjoyed the book well enough, I probably wouldn't read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 5/8/2013

    " Not my normal genre but I enjoyed it. Liked the historial fiction aspect of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 4/14/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryjane | 3/28/2013

    " Actually quite a good read. Interesting characters, held my interest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 12/11/2012

    " I was expecting something more substantial from this novel. It was more fluff than I expected it to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emeebee | 5/10/2012

    " I'm kind of a sucker for period fiction romance. It was good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/12/2012

    " I must have read the jacket wrong. I thought this was to be a mystery / suspense story. As it turns out, it was a decent romance / self-discoery story. A quick one-day read. It was fine for a lazy Saturday, but it wasn't what I thought it would be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 2/2/2012

    " This was a good story and an easy read, the part was it's a free book on your Kendle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 12/5/2011

    " Very good book with realistic description of the era. I enjoyed it! Definitely a girly book! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 10/30/2011

    " This book was kind of " Harlequin" but it held my interest and had a great ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracie Lear | 10/20/2011

    " Nice easy read. I recommend it :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 9/19/2011

    " Loved this book, easy read, couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 5/22/2011

    " This was a fun, easy read. It was better than I expected. Story moved right along and of course I love the time period (early 1800's). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marleah | 5/17/2011

    " A good read. It was interesting to learn about apothecaries in the 19th century. I was a little dismayed by all the suitors the author had flying around, it was hard to keep all of them straight. No heroine should have to deal with 4...5? love interests. At least she picked the right one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 5/17/2011

    " The Author was trying too hard to be like Jane Austen , too many of the same plots and character types in this book as are in a Jane Austen book. it was an okay read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niki | 5/17/2011

    " Cute story thats well written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/15/2011

    " It started out strong and then kind of fizzled out. The Author also left one of the characters with a loose end. The historical aspect was really interesting though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie | 5/14/2011

    " This one kept me guessing to the end who she was really going to marry. I didn't see how everything could possibly work out and it did! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 5/11/2011

    " I really liked this book. I agree with my aunt, who read it before me; it ended just right. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex | 5/8/2011

    " Bland. The heroine seems too perfect and nothing ever really seems to happen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynette | 5/8/2011

    " This book isn't an earthshattering novel, but it was interesting to read about the apothecarys. I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 5/4/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. It is an easy read. I would classify it as a clean 18th century romance novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 5/3/2011

    " Another free book that was just ok. The story was a little too predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charity | 5/1/2011

    " LOVED LOVED LOVED this book! I appreciated that it so down to earth. I loved the ending...great book! I can't wait to find more by this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 5/1/2011

    " Great book! Could not put it down. I am currently reading Ms. Klassen's next novel "The Silent Governess" and is turning out to be just as good :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 5/1/2011

    " This book was a nice "take me away" book for a weekend reading. There are a couple of surprises in the book, secrets reveled. Several love interests, but didn't end the way I would have expected, but still a nice ending. I will look to see if this author has written anything else. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JamieG | 4/25/2011

    " This was a good, FREE Kindle read. A period piece that took a look at historical medical practices along with romance, friendship, and a mild dose of Christianity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 4/25/2011
