The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner


In 18th-century London, a secret apothecary shop caters only to women who have been wronged by the men in their lives, offering free poisons to the women with the rule that they must never be used to harm another woman. More than 200 years later, a young woman receives the shocking news of her husband’s infidelity, and later finds a glass vial linked to the shop. It’s a remarkable debut novel of historical fiction that switches between timelines.
