This was the perfect measure of drama, heart, poetry and magic.
Neila runs her late mother’s apothecary, set up in the 1700s to help heal women’s ailments. But after a horrible betrayal from her lover, Neila helps to poison men who have wronged their partners. This is all pulled apart when we meet Eliza.
The book follows Caroline in the modern day, who is on the path to finding herself, uncovering the mystery of the apothecary murders and realising that she rules her own life.
I loved the theme of postions in this book, I loved how part of it was set in 1700s London and the mystery element also.
It all tied together so well, it was poetic and dramatic! Everything you need and want.
