THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER — OVER A MILLION COPIES SOLD!

“A bold, edgy, accomplished debut!” —Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Rose Code

A forgotten history. A secret network of women. A legacy of poison and revenge. Welcome to the Lost Apothecary…

Hidden in the depths of eighteenth-century London, a secret apothecary shop caters to an unusual kind of clientele. Women across the city whisper of a mysterious figure named Nella who sells well-disguised poisons to use against the oppressive men in their lives. But the apothecary’s fate is jeopardized when her newest patron, a precocious twelve-year-old, makes a fatal mistake, sparking a string of consequences that echo through the centuries.

Meanwhile in present-day London, aspiring historian Caroline Parcewell spends her tenth wedding anniversary alone, running from her own demons. When she stumbles upon a clue to the unsolved apothecary murders that haunted London two hundred years ago, her life collides with the apothecary’s in a stunning twist of fate—and not everyone will survive.

With crackling suspense, unforgettable characters and searing insight, The Lost Apothecary is a subversive and intoxicating debut novel of secrets, vengeance and the remarkable ways women can save each other despite the barrier of time.

Don’t miss THE LONDON SÉANCE SOCIETY! Sarah’s next spellbinding book about truth, illusion and the grave risks women will take to avenge the ones they love.

Good Read

I throughly enjoyed this book. It’s not a typical book I would choose to read on my own but thanks to my book club- it got me out of my ordinary genre of books.

Will read again

If you want something unique, try this book. The story is captivating and brilliant. Many twists and turns I didn’t expect. The characters were so interesting and unpredictable. It’s worthy of the time anyone devotes to reading an audiobook.

The Lost Apothecary

Almost read in one setting. Had not sleep, as much as I fought it, overtaken me, i would have. All the elements of every positive review written. I don’t understand how it could have even got a negative review!
