The Apothecary’s Daughter
Carrie Fancett Pagels
I listened to the recorded version of Julie Klassen’s book. She has an elegant writer's "voice", perfect for this historical inspirational novel set in England. The audiobook reader was also very good.
Lots of nice little “gifts” of information about the lives of apothecaries and their profession and the harsh realities of the transition to more “modern” medicine. A very unexpected pattern in the romances that her heroine has and in the final choice she makes. There are so many twists and turns that this is a novel that I would listen to again.
