Introduction

(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.

  "The Apothecary'sDaughter"by ncjn5 (see profile) 04/10/12

This is a great period book if you like Jane Austin books. You can tell it is a new book (not from that time), but she does a great job.

 
  "Apothecary's Daughter"by Wella (see profile) 11/15/11

A good read that I will no doubt read again. I must say that I did know which love interest Lilly would end up with right off the bat, but Klassen did do a good job of planting doubts.

 
  "When I read the first 50 pages I thought that the book could be interesting"by mpaniaguatej (see profile) 04/07/11

After that it started to get worse. The plot got boring, some of the characters were there...for what? Boring and non sense christian romantic novel? A waste of time.
