Product Description

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.

    This was such an enjoyable read! I truly loved the characters in this book. The main character, Lilly, longs for more than what the small village of her birth can offer. She was abandoned by her mother, but she is loved and adored by her father and brother. Her Aunt and Uncle offer her the opportunity of London society, and she takes it. She finds she enjoys the life London offers, but she does occasionally miss home.

    Upon getting word that her father isn't doing well, she returns home. There are several twists and turns in this book, and I enjoy being surprised. I rarely give a book with a written reviews five stars, but I truly feel this one deserved it. I highly recommend this wonderful read.

    This was my first experience in reading Ms. Klassen's work. I found this story to jump from one thing to another without offering a satisfactory resolution to any predicament. I had to re-read numerous paragraphs to see if I'd missed something. The characters are not well-described, and the storyline is lacking.

    I have enjoyed many of Julie Klassen's novels, but this would not be on the top of my list. Call me a hopeless romantic, but I kinda wished she wouldn't of ended up with the man she did. If I could rewrite the story I probably would, but I suppose that I would make it so much more predictable. :P

    There's almost a sense of security in thinking you know where the plot is taking you, and when you end up somewhere totally different then where you planned on going, it throws you for a loop.

    It is a little slow, (my friend said she just skimmed through it) but the book is well researched and written in Julie's typical style (which is great). All in all, it's an enjoyable read. Go on, read it! How was it for you... ?

    This was my first book by Julie Klassen. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters and the entire story. It wasn't completely predictable, like many books can be. I was enthralled with this book and found myself reading long into the night wanting to know what happened next. That is the sign of a great book!
