Very interesting but I just couldn't get into this one as I did the Lost Apothecary.

Super entertaining and fast paced read! Honestly, I wanted more of Eliza and Nella, and less of the current day story.

A historical fiction read with a dual timeline--1761 and modern day. The setting was London and a small shop that had desperate customers and concocted dangerous compounds. All is well until a 12-year old assistant places a "medication" in a marked jar which leads to the discovery of the business Meanwhile, in modern-day, a marked glass vial is found in the Thames. The story was very focused on only the "business" in both eras. I wish there was more of 17th century London contained within the novel, but all in all, it was a good read. 352 pages… (lisätietoja)

Told by two POVs, Lena Wickes a spiritualist’s understudy, and Mr. Morley, VP of the Society’s Department of Spiritualism, set in the late 1800s in London. Throughout the book, I kept thinking of all the research that went into this story (as with The Lost Apothecary.) Great insight into this gothic-vibe world, thanks to the author’s research.

I enjoyed the thread of suspense, murder, and magic, the deceit that was so common in this line of work… one of the few professions back then where women were considered more adept than men for this job. Probably my favorite part was the author’s notes at the end which gave insightful info from her research. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this interesting and unique story!… (lisätietoja)
