The Apothecary's Daughter by Julie Klassen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a feel good book. A book that is sweet, charming, moving, romantic...its a book to feel good about reading!
Lilly Haswell, as the title states, is an apothecary's daughter dealing with a mother who has abandoned her family. Lilly must help raise her challenged brother and help in her fathers shop. But an opportunity arises for Lilly to live in London to further her education and perhaps find a suitor!
Lilly knows her background will likely become an issue for a well-to-do suitor but that doesn't prevent all the gentleman from flirting with the beautiful and charming Lillian Haswell. There is the Oxford trained physician, Dr. Graves, the well-to-do Roger Marlow from her home town, a very sweet gentleman named Roger Bromley or there is her fathers apprentice, Francis Baylor.
Lilly considers her future with each but some decisions come easy enough. When Lillys father becomes ill she must return home and help in her fathers shop. There she discovers that home is where she wants to be, even if it takes her awhile to realize it. But who will be Lillys true love? You will not be disappointed!
