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

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.  

The Lost Apothecary (Sarah Penner) Book Reviews

Excellent read!I had a very hard time putting this one down. I would read before bed, during breaks at work, and whenever else I could. The book kept me questioning and tied all the pieces together phenomenally throughout the book. Highly recommend!.Score: 5/5

MehBoring and predictable..Score: 1/5

Loved this!It was so good and so well written, I managed to read it in under 24 hours ❤️.Score: 5/5

Brain Numbing.Interesting concept, but I can’t even finish this—not worth my time. The writing style is disjointed, no character development, couldn’t find anyone to care enough about to continue. Reads like an historical romance novel for those waiting for a better book to come along..Score: 1/5

Didn’t want it to end!It’s been a very long time that I have loved a book as much as I love this book! I own the hard copy and the audiobook. I like to listen when I can’t read. I would also give that 5 stars! I binged read/ listened to this book in two days. I didn’t want it to end. I look forward to more books by this author! Definitely in my top 5 favorite books! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.Score: 5/5

I will tell everyone about this bookI read a lot of books, and for the past year, most have been disappointing or unfulfilling. I’ve dabbled into the genre of murder mysteries, and haven’t had much luck finding something with depth. I finally came across this book and cannot shake how impressed I am. This book has blown my mind. With one coherent story, the author manages to touch across so many relatable themes. Womanhood, parenthood, honesty and deceit, self-awareness, faith, courage, curiosity, friendships - old and new, boredom, intrigue, fear, purpose…and my favorite part - a touch of magic, and a touch of spirituality. I believe our physical world and a spiritual world are woven together, and maybe a magical world is the in between - and without acknowledging this in a biased or extremist way, the author leaves little nuggets of its existence. If you are at a crossroads in your life - personal or career - let this story shed some light on what matters most. Forget society’s influence, forget the things drilled into you that deep down you don’t believe. Jump into an icy river and allow yourself to emerge to a new you..Score: 5/5

Great cross-century woman-centered storyThis book scratched all kinds of itches for me! Historical fiction (eighteenth-century London), revenge (via poison), crossing the borders of time (to present-day London and an American protagonist who is rediscovering who she is), and friendships between women who lean on one another at their most vulnerable moments. It's fast-paced and suspenseful--no wonder it was an instant NYT bestseller!.Score: 5/5

Boring and predictable.Put me to sleep so I guess it was good for something. I didn’t like the characters … too predictable..Score: 1/5

Compelling, but...Compelling story line and I did read it fast but there were a few things that seriously hindered my enjoyment of this book. Too many plot points hinged on misunderstandings that could be easily explained, and the characters at times seemed flat. The writing style felt like it was doing way too much of my thinking for me, spelling out things to a frustrating degree, stating the obvious, telling not showing (or in some cases shooting itself in the foot by showing THEN unnecessarily telling)..Score: 3/5
