    Susannah Leyton has grown up behind the counter of her father's apothecary shop in bustling Fleet Street. A skilled student, her father has granted her the freedom to pursue her considerable talents. But Susannah is dealt a shocking blow when her widowed father marries again, and her stepmother seems determined to remove her from the apothecary shop. A proposal of marriage from the charming Henry Savage seems to offer Susannah an escape. But as the plague sweeps through London, tragedy strikes, and dark secrets from her husband's past begin to unfold.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Apothecary's Daughter again? Why?

    Yes. There was a lot of historical information about the plague and the fires in London. Also, what spices, etc, they used to cure illness.


    What other book might you compare The Apothecary's Daughter to and why?

    The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Although the Apothecary's Daugher was easier and quicker to get thru.


    Which character – as performed by Anne Dover – was your favorite?

    Well of course, Suzanne was my favorite character. What that poor girl put up with but never lost her courage and drive.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Apothecary's Daughter and why?

    Suzanne again. She faced many trying issues but always saw them thru. Courage could be her middle name.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't miss this book. I thought it was one of the best I have listened to in years. And trust me, I do over 50 books a year.
