The Apothecary's DaughterThe Apothecary's Daughter by Julie Klassen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a lovely read. Lilly was an amazing girl with an incredible memory. She helps her father run his Apothecary shop even though that kind of thing was thought to be beyond "a mere woman." The story is about her life...she goes to London and spends a couple of seasons there, meets some eligible men, but has to return home because her father becomes ill. She helps put the store back together and faces charges for prescribing medicine since she, again, is only a woman and not permitted to be an apothecary even though she probably knows the remedies better than her father. This book held my interest and didn't seem like just another romantic story although there was romance involved. There were several threads woven throughout that were tied up in the end. An enjoyable book.
