This month we are discussing The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner. Hidden in the depths of eighteenth-century London, a secret apothecary shop caters to an unusual kind of clientele. Women whisper of a mysterious figure named Nella who sells well-disguised poisons to use against the oppressive men in their lives. But the apothecary’s fate is jeopardized when her newest patron makes a fatal mistake, sparking a string of consequences that echo through the centuries.
Meanwhile in present-day London, aspiring historian Caroline Parcewell stumbles upon a clue to the unsolved apothecary murders, and her life collides with the apothecary’s in a stunning twist of fate.
