1665: Susannah Leyton has grown up behind the counter of her father's apothecary shop in bustling Fleet Street. A skilled student - the resinous scents of lavender, rosemary, liquorice, and turpentine run in her blood - her father has granted her the freedom to pursue her considerable talents. But Susannah is dealt a shocking blow when her widowed father marries again, and her new stepmother seems determined to remove her from the apothecary shop for good.

A proposal of marriage from the charming Henry Savage seems to offer Susannah an escape. But as the plague sweeps through London, tragedy strikes, and dark secrets from her husband's past begin to unfold. It will take all of Susannah's courage and passion to save herself from tragedy.

Listener Opinions

    " Being a fan of historical fiction, the setting in London 1665 during the years of plague and the great fire provide a perfect foil to this sweet story of frustration, misunderstanding, love, family, healing of souls and creation of second chances. Lovely narrator who made the story more captivating. A book is a winner for me if it stimulates me to learn more about real events woven into the story. "

    " I loved this book, I was hooked right from the word go. Charlotte describes the scenes so well that you almost believe that you are there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Forsyth | 1/24/2014

    " A historical novel set in one of my favourite periods of history, the Restoration, this is a vivid and intriguing novel about a young woman and her struggle to make her life for herself during the late 17th century, a time of plague, fire, turmoil and prejudice against women. I really enjoyed it! "

    " I loved the beginning, though from the moment her father changes his circumstances it's slow paced and dull. I was wrong to judge this book by its beautiful front cover. Snooze fest "

    " I found the story predictable and characters 2-dimensional. Some interesting historical details, but overall I cant recommend it. "

    " A lovely holiday book where you find you are totally submerged in the 1600's. Well written with interesting and well researched references to London of the time. Can not wait for Charlotte's second book to arrive... "

    " Good period novel set during the Plague and Great Fire of London. Story moves at a good pace and was easy to read. Bit of suspense, but thought it was a bit Mills and Boon in some parts. Interesting characters and storyline. "

    " I feel I have read something similar and it is a bit predictable. I will have to give it a miss and not finish. Maybe I'm not in the right head space for this one. "
