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!

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

    " 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 "

    " 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! "
